A RAIDER was caught red-handed when he ran into the arms of two cops in his bid to escape from a �7,500 wages snatch in London's East End.
The officers in plain clothes were alerted by the robbery victim bravely chasing one of the two robbers towards them.
The thieves had spotted a businessman driving out of the car park at the back of Barclays Bank in Whitechapel.
