The video was taken on October 14 and shows two young men being chased after they were seen moving a scooter across a road in the Old Trafford area of Manchester.
One of the bystanders who confronted the alleged thieves was Abbas Warya, who was out walking his dog when he saw the youths and decided to get involved.
He confronted the youths along with others, before they attempted to make an escape and things started to go badly wrong.
In the video, one suspect said that the bike had 'already been broke' and that it had been left abandoned 'for years'.
However, one of those who had challenged them said that their story didn't check out because the scooter had a '21 plate' on it.
In case you haven't picked up, that means that it was a newly registered vehicle and couldn't even have been around for years.
Both of the helmetless young men denied stealing the bike before one managed to get it to start up and they attempted to make a swift escape.
As they tried to get away on the £2,500 scooter, they lost control of the vehicle and clipped the side of the pavement and slid into a parked car.
That's the point that their alliance was broken, as one got up and took off on the scooter, leaving his mate behind on the floor.
At that point, the youngster started limping around on the road before telling those who had gathered to call him an ambulance because he'd hurt his finger.
"You deserve that, you b***ard", the person filming responded.
The second suspect managed to make a slightly shaky getaway down towards Stretford Road.
The young man who had been left behind reportedly later ran away, making his own getaway before police arrived at the scene.
Greater Manchester Police have said that officers were called to Cornbrook Street at around 5:45pm on October 14, where they were investigating reports that a scooter had failed to stop after a collision with a parked car.
The police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward, calling them on 101 or utilising the live chat function on their website.
