Honestly, who tries to steal a torch? Maybe if you're desperate to see in the dark, sure. But why not steal a flashlight? Those last way longer.
More info about this video: While it may look like a full grown man the police have taken a 17 year old boy into custody after trying to steal the Olympic torch outside Gravesend, England on July 20. Luckily for the torch carrier the Olympic security did exactly what it is supposed to do and immediately took out the would be burglar.
