Police rescue theft suspect stuck between car, wall in Turkey’s south
Police officers in the southern Turkish province of Adana have called in rescue teams to save a theft suspect who was stuck between a car and a wall while he was trying to hide from them.
The state-run Anadolu Agency reported that the incident happened late Jan. 16 in Adana’s Yüreğir district after police were notified by locals that there was a man in the neighborhood stealing coal from gardens with a wheelbarrow.
A police patrol dispatched to the scene quickly identified the suspect, who fled and was soon found stuck between a parked van and a garden wall.
“What are you doing here? You’re ruining my car,” the owner of the van was quoted as saying to the suspect after he was called by the police to the scene.
Apparent that the suspect could be injured if the van was moved, firefighters were also called, partly demolishing the wall to save him.
The suspect was detained, while a criminal investigation was launched.
