According to a police affidavit a man named William Odenweller, 27, took a flying leap at a stranger.
While mid-air, he kicked his target in the head and then, as said target was falling forwards to hit the ground, Odenweller reached into his victim's back pocket hoping to steal his wallet.
Unfortunately for the nimble Odenweller, he couldn't locate a wallet and having thus wasted a perfectly good kick, resolved to flee the scene immediately.
However, two witnesses to his amazing kick prevented him from fleeing by pinning him to the ground.
Odenweller was arrested, and charged with robbery by assault; bail is set at $15,000.
