Robber Falls Asleep While Holding Man Hostage

Posted by Rob on Sunday, 7 March, 2010

A machete-wielding robber held a 61-year-old Birmingham homeowner hostage for seven hours in a home invasion, until he eventually grew tired and allowed the victim to escape.

After threatening the man with a machete and hammer, the robber told the victim he would “slice him open” if he didn’t hand over all of his cash. For some reason the robber then stuck around awhile, holding the man hostage.

Jason VoorheesEventually the robber wandered into the victim’s bedroom. In Goldilocks fashion, the bed ended up being just right. The 24-year-old robber crashed on the mattress and fell asleep.

The victim was then able to sneak out of the house and flee to his neighbor’s home where he called the police. The burglar was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary and false imprisonment.

I think Jason Voorhees would turn over in his grave to hear about this disrespect of a machete crime. But I suppose he would even get bored after messing around for 7 hours…

Be Safe, Be Prepared.
