This is perhaps proof there is no such thing as a perfect crime. Detectives are working to find the bandit who threw a brick or large rock at a business but ended up hitting himself. The incident was caught on the restaurant’s surveillance system.
On September 20th, the suspect successfully shattered the front glass window of the carryout business in the 4000 block of Suitland Road. But that’s when his luck ran out. The suspect used the same brick or rock to then try to break what turned out to be bulletproof glass protecting the front counter. He tried three times. On the third attempt, the brick or rock flew back at him, appearing to hit him in the head. The suspect fell to the ground where he laid for a few minutes. He eventually got up and left the business.
