    File picture.

    Police in Maine say they were able to track down a suspected mugger because he had rice in the treads of his shoes from stolen Chinese takeout.

    A delivery driver for the restaurant says he was called April 9 to deliver in Lewiston, where he was confronted by three men and attacked for the food. The Sun-Journal reports the suspects then fled with the food.

    Police say surveillance video identified that one of the suspects was wearing red sneakers. When confronted by police at his apartment, officers noticed rice stuck to the 23-year-old suspect's shoes and Chinese takeout containers in the trash.

    Two of the adult suspects were charged with robbery and theft, alongside the third suspect, who is a juvenile.
