A friend and I were walking up to Aterro in Flamengo with the boys. We suddenly see a man run off with two police men chasing after him. There was regular car (not cop car) stopped in the middle of traffic with both doors open. The police men were in uniform. The man ran from, what seemed to be, the vicinity of said car. When the police did not catch the man, they awkwardly entered and drove off in the vehicle.
The above picture is of the car stopped in the middle of traffic.
I have my theories but I want to know, what do you think happened?
