Briefly News previously reported a criminal got more than he bargained for following a botched burglary attempt.
The thief seemingly underestimated his own size as he tried squeezing through a set of burglar bars, but got stuck in the process. Video footage reveals how the man was exposed and unable to break free from the window.
The home owner needed no second invitation as he quickly taught the thief that crime doesn't pay. The home owner continuously struck the burglar with a bottle against his knee, resulting in excruciating pain.
