Cameras happened to be rolling when the unusual scene took place.
The man used two large pieces of metal from a construction site to smash the car window and steal a laptop from inside.
Because the crime took place on Hollywood Boulevard, the witnesses are an A-list of movie greats.
Darth Vader was on-hand as was Superman and Iron Man. Interestingly enough, none of the “super” heros jumped in to help.
“Next thing I hear is ‘I love Jesus Christ,’ and I hear a smash” KTLA cameraman Victor Vargas told his own station.
The man took the laptop from the cart and walked to a nearby kiosk where he opened the computer and began to use it. Moments later the man was face down on Susan Lucci’s Hollywood star with handcuffs on.
KTLA asked Superman why he didn’t swoop in to help. His response ,“it’s not my job to jump in the middle."
Sounds a little lame but the we’ll admit more disappointment in Darth Vader not going with the Force choke at sometime during the incident.
