Fleeing suspect ducks into police station

FLORENCE, Italy (UPI) -- Italian police said a theft suspect looking for a hiding place mistakenly ran into a police station he believed to be a post office.

Florence police said a couple spotted the young Romanian man, whose name and age were not released, taking a bag from their car and the man ducked into what he believed to be a central post office in an attempt to lose his pursuers, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Wednesday.

However, police said the suspect was shocked to find himself standing in a municipal police station and was arrested when the couple ran in behind him and told officers of his alleged crime.
