A bloke left his young girlfriend to deal with two robbers on a motorbike as they walked hand-in-hand along the pavement.

The man was filmed sprinting away from his partner after one robber jumped off the back of a motorbike to confront them.

The suspect can be seen attempting to trip the fleeing lad but turns his attention on the young girl after the bloke manages to escape the situation.

In the footage, the robber takes a mobile phone from her pocket and jumps on the back of the motorbike before fleeing the scene.

The horrifying incident happened in the neighbourhood of Poligonos in the municipality of Ecatepec de Morelos in Mexico.

Reports say the footage was captured on May 21.

The footage was spread widely on social media where the fleeing boyfriend has received a wave of criticism – although some claim that he did the right thing.

One online commenter wrote: "Equality. He would be more likely get killed standing up to them."

Another said: "Good on him."

"She will never be attracted to him again," said another.
