Bur­glar shot in but­tocks

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A bur­glar who tried to steal a car in Aus­tralia got more than he bar­gained for when he was shot in the but­tocks with an ar­row by the archery en­thu­si­ast owner. Po­lice said the hap­less thief broke into the man’s Syd­ney house on Sun­day evening and took cash be­fore grab­bing the keys to his car. The pro­pri­etor, who was at home at the time with his wife, con­fronted the thief in the garage as he tried to re­verse the ve­hi­cle and make a get­away. Af­ter the 68-yearold armed him­self with his bow, the in­truder opted to get out of the car and make a run for it, jump­ing a fence. “As he ran away, the male res­i­dent stood up on the fence and shot the flee­ing man us­ing the com­pound bow and ar­row, hit­ting him in the but­tocks or lower back area,” New South Wales po­lice said. De­spite ap­par­ently tak­ing a hit, the man es­caped and no trace has been seen of him since. Po­lice seized the bow and ar­row as part of their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
