A man who attempted a carjacking was surprised to find out the car he attempted to jack was an unmarked police car.

According to St.Petersburg Police, the dopey carjacker was surprised by two detectives, who arrested him after he attempted to flee.

A police report said the undercover detectives were sitting in their vehicle last week when 27-year-old Dominique Albert of the Tampa Bay area opened a passenger door armed with a steak knife.

Both detectives yelled “police” and one drew his gun as Albert reportedly dropped the knife and tried to run, according to the report. It says the detectives caught up with him and arrested him.

Authorities say Albert faces several charges, including carjacking and assaulting a law enforcement officer.┬áJail records show Albert was being held on $170,000 bail. The records didn’t list an attorney for the man.

At the time of the attempted car jacking, Albert was free on bond after an arrest last month for shoplifting at a Walmart.
