BROCKTON, Ma. (WTVR) - A would-be thief in Massachusetts used "the old noggin", when he allegedly tries to burglarize a business.
Brockton police said 54-year-old Manuel Fernandes tried to break in to a Rent-A-Center storage bay around midnight Tuesday, but he found himself trapped.
According to police, the suspect tried to pry open the garage door with a bed post, and when he tried to squeeze his way underneath, the door fell on his head.
Apparently, Fernandes had been stuck for nearly nine hours before a Rent-A-Center manager found him. The manager pulled out his cell phone and recorded a conversation with the suspect, who was stuck in the compromising position.
Fernandes suffered a large bruise on the back of his head from the pressure of the door and was sent to the hospital.
Police said they plan to issue a summons charging him with breaking and entering and malicious damage to property.
