VIDEO: Burglar throws large object at bulletproof glass, hits himself in head in Suitland
SUITLAND, Md. (ABC7) —
Detectives in Prince George's County are searching for a burglar who had some bad luck while trying to rob a carryout in Suitland last month.
According to police, the bandit threw a brick or a large rock at the restaurant located in the 4000 block of Suitland Road on September 20, and successfully shattered the front glass window.
But when he tried to use that same brick or rock in an attempt to break the bulletproof glass that protected the front counter three times, police say the brick or rock flew back at him and appeared to hit him in the head on the third try.
After being hit in the head, police say the suspect fell to the ground and laid there for a few minutes before eventually getting up and leaving the business.
If you have any information on this incident or know someone with a suspicious head injury, call PGPD at 301-390-2160 or 1-866-411-TIPS.
