Remember that panic you'd get when you were young at the grocery store, and lose track of where your mom is?

Bautzen police had no issue identifying the suspect in a petty shoplifting case Friday when he left behind a key piece of evidence.

They said the 29-year-old suspect had around 5 euros (about $5.65) of merchandise when he decided to bolt out of the store, triggering an alarm.

Police arrived to find the suspect's 8-year-old kid standing in the store.

Police said "the culprit was quickly identified."

When they caught up to the suspect, they found he had fallen in the middle of his escape, injuring himself, and ending up with a stay in the hospital first.
