A man burgled a house in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta last weekend and stole many valuables from the owners, but broke his foot during his escape by jumping off the first floor.

Police in Cai Be District, Tien Giang Province confirmed on Monday they had arrested Nguyen Hoang Che, 30, on robbery charges.

Preliminary investigation showed that Che broke into the house of N.T.L., 44, in My Duc Tay Commune at around 11:00 pm on Saturday.

He brought along a crowbar and other tools to break open the safe inside the bedroom.

The thief managed to take a large amount of gold and cash worth more than VND238 million (US$10,400) in total before being caught by L. and his wife, who had just arrived home.

Che tried to escape with the valuables by jumping off the first floor and ended up breaking his left foot.

He continued running away but was apprehended by police officers and local residents about 30 minutes later.

At the police station, Che said he had climbed up the wall to get into the first floor of the house and was able to avoid being captured by CCTV.

The man was previously convicted of robbery twice in 2012 and 2015, according to officers.
