Bloke Wearing Just A Towel Chases Down Thieves Who Stole His Beloved Ute

If you're ever confronted with your car being stolen, the last thing you'd want is to be is naked as it can make for an interesting chase.

But one Brisbane bloke didn't care that he was in the shower he saw thieves taking off with his beloved ute.

Bobby Cook saw his vehicle rolling down the driveway and thanks to some quick thinking, he grabbed a towel and chased after it and jumped onto the back.

The 27-year-old sat in the tray for a solid 30 minutes so that he could get his car back. The thieves threw a coffee cup at his head in a bid to get rid of him and while it smacked him in the face, he held on for dear life.

He's told reporters: "[As] soon as it hit my head I saw the blood going on the ute, so I knew it was a big one [cut].

"I've just grabbed and pulled my towel...and put it up against my head.

"I'm still holding on with one hand, the other hand with a towel around my head, still on the back of the ute doing 80kph in a 60 zone."

He says the ute got up to speeds of around 140km/h on the highway.

Bobby saw a white car come up from behind and he jumped off his ute and asked the driver of the vehicle to help but they drove off. Police think the driver of the white car was associates with the thieves.

The 27-year-old went to a nearby supermarket and called the police before his dad picked him up and took him home.

"[I] had a beer and a cigarette - just sat down and thankful to be alive and just to give the missus a cuddle," Mr Cook said.

"It's over now. I'm done, I'm knackered. I've got all my family here now. This is the best thing you could ever ask for."

The car, which he calls part of the family and his pride and joy, was only just paid off after five years of payments, so no doubt he'll be devastated.

Bobby's fiancée said the thieves appeared to be 'youths' or 'kids'. Police are now appealing for anyone who might have seen the thieves to contact them.

Certainly not what you want to happen at any time but when you're trying to enjoy a shower is bloody annoying.
