Two men have been dramatically foiled allegedly trying to steal expensive electric scooters from a Gold Coast house.

It’s a Saturday afternoon when two men allegedly targeted the top-of-the-line scooters — no one is home, but the owner is secretly watching.

One of the pair is seen jumping a fence to open the garage from inside, allowing his partner to reverse in the getaway car.

They appear to cut the chain locks and start shoving the $6000 scooters into the boot, oblivious that security camera footage is being streamed live to the owner, and the police and the neighbours have been called.

The footage shows a head suddenly duck under the half-open roller door, yelling “oi, oi, oi”.

It startles the pair, who try to escape.

The roller door is still halfway down, so the vehicle smashes through it and flattens a street sign.

But the boot is still open and the scooters fall out, alongside one of the two alleged thieves.

The man behind the wheel sped off empty-handed, leaving behind his mate who was pinned by members of the public.

He suffered facial fractures and was taken away by police. He was expected to be charged overnight.

Anyone with information that could help police can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
