A lawnmower robot’s electronic cries for help have foiled a thief’s plan to make off with it in Germany.

German police said a homeowner in the western town of Lippstadt was surprised to receive a smartphone message from the robot that it had flipped upside down on Tuesday evening.

When he went outside to check on the device, he spotted a thief attempting to steal it, reports Deutsche Welle.

Caught in the act, the thief dropped the robot and fled, according to the police.
