Bur­glar gets ar­row in the but­tocks

The Sun (Malaysia) - - FRONT PAGE -

SYDNEY: 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 thief broke into the man’s Sydney house on Sun­day evening and took cash be­fore grab­bing the keys to his car.

The owner, 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.

When the 68-year-old armed him­self with a bow and ar­row, the in­truder jumped out of the car and fled over a fence.

“As he ran away, the male res­i­dent stood on the fence and shot the thief, hit­ting him in the but­tocks,” New South Wales po­lice said.

De­spite the in­jury, the man es­caped and no trace has been seen of him since.

Po­lice later seized the bow and ar­row as part of their in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the case. – AFP
