A mysterious group of pranksters blocked off the doorway in a subway car in Hamburg, Germany last week, constructing a brick wall across the opening which went unnoticed by the train’s conductor until an hour later, leaving the vandals plenty of time to get away unnoticed.

Oddly enough, commuters that boarded the train assumed the blockade was intentional, with one passenger telling The Daily Mail that “no one seemed to be paying any attention to it though and I just assumed it was a new feature or something.”

Police are analyzing security cameras to help track down those involved in building the wall. The cost to fix the car is estimated to be in the tens of thousands, and if caught, the vandals could face up to five years in prison.
