New York burglar’s failed escape attempt caught on Bodycam
A New York police officer’s Bodycam has captured the intense moment a burglar jumped out of a bathroom window to try and run away.
Footage posted to LiveLeak yesterday shows how officers forced their way into a suburban bathroom in Gates, New York, as a young man climbed through the window in attempt to escape.
Officers shouted “Stop” repeatedly in attempt to make the intruder surrender, but he ignored them and jumped out of the window.
The video cuts to a police officer handcuffing 17-year-old Nicholas Hinchman.
Gates police said they went to serve a warrant at the home for burglary in the third degree.
When they arrived, Hinchman ran from officers and locked himself in a bathroom.
A Gates police officer, who was waiting outside of the window where Hinchman landed, took him into custody.
Both Hinchman and the officer suffered minor cuts from the glass.
It is believed Hinchman is in custody after trying to escape from police. He was arraigned in court, where the judge set his bail at $13,000.
