    “Housebreaker” gets stuck in the window

    May 12, 2020


    An alleged would-be house robber found himself in a tight spot when he got stuck in a window while attempting to break into a house in Alabama outside Klerksdorp in North West.

    And he did what any reasonable person in a sticky situation would do: He screamed for help.

    Lesego Tau, 39, appeared in the Klerksdorp Magistrate’s Court on Monday on a charge of housebreaking after he was allegedly found stuck and screaming from a window at a private residence in the early hours of Saturday morning.

    According to North West police spokesperson Colonel Adéle Myburgh, Tau was arrested after he was allegedly caught by the homeowner when he got stuck while attempting to enter the house through a window.

    “It is alleged that the homeowner – who went to bed at about 22:00 on Friday – was awoken by a strange noise and went to investigate,” Myburgh said.

    “She allegedly found Tau stuck in the window and screaming for help. The police were ultimately summoned and arrested [Tau]. He was remanded in custody until his next court appearance on Friday for a formal bail application.”
