See moment when thug attempted car burgle failed

… Man launched a brick at disabled drivers car — only for it to bounce back and smash into his face
Nemesis caught up with a vandal who was arrested by the police after a brick he launched at a car window bounced back and struck him in the face.

CCTV footage captured the hilarious moment the thug fell back clutching his face in pain after the masonry hit him.

Homeowner Martin Craig, 32, said: “This nice person decided he would break into my car after many failed attempts karma came too bite him in the face.”

Mr Craig, who uses a wheelchair, 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.

He said his vehicle sustained scratches to the glass and paint work, adding: “No idea why it was my car he targeted unless he knows that I’m in a wheelchair.”

A Durham Constabulary spokeswoman said: “Police were called to reports of shoplifting in Grove Road, Brandon on October 5, at about 6.30am.

“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 offences and will appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates Court on Thursday, November 7.”
