Pennsylvania Police don’t know who tried to break into a man’s home early on Saturday – but they say that the suspect should have one identifying mark for the next few days: a gash in his forehead.
This gash comes courtesy of the homeowner’s ceramic coffee mug having been smashed on his head.
South Strabane police tell reporters that a man in his 30s or 40s broke into the home about 11 a.m.
The burglar pulled a knife on the homeowner, who police 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.
