First-floor leap of faith fails to save burglars

First-floor leap of faith fails to save burglars

In a scene that could have been ripped from a slapstick comedy, three stooges were injured in Kratie town after their attempt to break into a home resulted in a first-floor jump that led to their capture.

On Sunday, the men were trying to enter an empty home when vigilant neighbours witnessed the caper and called the police.

In a panic, all three tested their luck and hopped out of a window to try and make a run for it.

However, neighbours made sure they stayed put, and police soon intervened.

The men admitted to trying to rob the home, and after a brief hospital stay, they were sent to court.
