In the video, the officer illuminates the wall behind his colleague with the body camera and reveals the suspect hidden there
The officer who wears the body camera lights his flashlight in all directions before the light illuminates the wall just behind the unsuspecting cop, where a young man in a gray sweatshirt is hiding.
& # 39; That guy & # 39 ;? exclaims the policeman with the flashlight and makes his colleagues aware of the presence behind them.
& # 39; What the …?! & # 39; exclaims one of the officers as he and the others quickly get over their shock, pull their illusory quarry out of its hiding place and take it into custody.
