RADCLIFFE, UK — A man has been dubbed the “bungling burglar” by police in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester, after he got stuck trying to enter a house through the window.
Sean Crawshaw, 47, was in the process of breaking and entering when his head got lodged in a small bathroom window 15 feet above the ground. The home’s 60-something owner returned later to find the unwanted guest and called police, the BBC reported.
It took firefighters 20 minutes to rescue the would-be burglar, who injured his ear when they tried to pull him out of the bathroom window.
The Greater Manchester Police said on Twitter that Crawshaw was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison at a court hearing for the December incident.
