WATCH: Have-a-go hero chases down and confronts bike thief in Dublin

A cyclist filmed the moment he chased down a bike thief after catching him robbing a bike in County Dublin.

Cyclist Jozef 'Joe' Dobias observed a man stealing the bike and spent the next six minutes or so following him.

Mr Dobias, who is from Slovakia and has lived in Ireland for the last 11 years,  eventually confronted the man about the robbery.

After a few seconds, the man, who has his face covered in a scarf, drops the bike and storms off.

Jozef (30) captured the whole incident on a GoPro and published it on the Dublin Loves Bikes YouTube page.

"My aim is to now reunite the owner with the bike as it's a very nice Giant Liv Alight in very good condition," Jozef told Independent.ie.

"Surely will be missed. So please share this far and wide."
