A thief got his face injured in a failed attempt of breaking a car window.
The brick he hurled at the car to smash the window bounced back and hit him exactly in the face.
Fortunately, a CCTV camera captured the entire incident, right from the time he approached the Renault Kangoo to the instant he left the spot in a bad shape.
The incident took place in Brandon, a village in Durham.
In the CCTV footage, the thug covered in a black hoodie can be seen approaching the disabled driver’s car in a dauntless manner.
Even though the man was served instant karma, he was arrested by the local police soon after the incident.
“This nice person decided he would break into my car after many failed attempts karma came too bite him in the face,” car owner Martin Craig said.
Martin, who has to rely on a wheelchair for moving around, added: “I didn’t even know it happened until 10.30 when the police knocked on my door to tell me they had caught someone trying to break into my car so I gave them all CCTV footage.
“I just thought ‘it’s just gone daylight, how does he have the nerve to do it in plain sight?’ When we saw it hit him, well we all just laughed.”
Martin, 32, shared the footage on social media where it got thousands of views, with people all over the world finding it ‘hilarious.’
Speaking of the damage done to his car, Martin said that the window glass received scratches and some portion of the car paint was ruined.
A spokeswoman for Durham Constabulary said: “Police were called to reports of shoplifting in Grove Road, Brandon on October 5, at about 6.30 am.
“Whilst in attendance, officers received reports of an incident of criminal damage in the same street. A 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage to a vehicle and shoplifting.
“He has since been charged with both offenses.”
