Hatchet Bank Robbery

   A Bank Robber Smashed Through Bulletproof Glass With a HatchetIt’s sort of refreshing to hear about a criminal who’s really dumb AND really patient:  A guy in China tried to rob a bank, using a HATCHET to get past the teller’s bulletproof glass.  And it actually WORKED.  The problem was that it took him over three minutes.

He made a hole that was barely big enough to crawl through, grabbed as much cash as he could, struggled to climb back through the glass, got one leg through the hole . . .  and the cops showed up.But they couldn’t get to him, because THEY couldn’t get through the glass either.  And after a small struggle . . . plus a warning shot from one of the cops . . .the guy managed to slip out a back door.  No word on whether they caught him or not. 


–But he put his mask on AFTER walking into the bank, so they should be able to ID him.  You can see raw footage of the entire thing on YouTube.
