Fleeing shoplifter forgets one thing -- his son.

A shoplifter looking to make a quick getaway from a supermarket after stealing a packet of meat left police a crucial piece of evidence - his 12-year-old son.

In his haste, the 45-year-old thief made a solo dash to his car, batting away a supermarket worker who had flung himself on the vehicles' bonnet in a bid to stop the escape.

Police in the southern Dutch town of Kerkrade said they managed to contact the thief via the boy, but he had refused to return and collect his son.
