“Riddick”-ulous Mugshot? Guy halts home invasion using just a coffee cup
Lawmen from a southwestern Pennsylvania district don’t know who tried to break into a man’s home over the weekend; but they say the suspect should have one identifying mark for the next few days… A gash in his forehead, courtesy of being slammed by the homeowner’s ceramic coffee mug which shattered.
South Strabane police told the Observer-Reporter of Washington, Pa. how a male in his 30’s or 40’s broke into the home about 11 a.m.
Cops say the burglar pulled a knife on the homeowner, who officers are not identifying. When the men struggled, the homeowner split the burglar’s forehead with the mug and he ran away.
Detective John Bruner expects the burglar, and whoever was driving a car he hopped into, were looking for jewelry or other items to be pawned for drug money.
