The Prince George’s County Police Department said Monday a man was caught on surveillance footage breaking into a restaurant last month with a brick. Police say the man shattered the store’s front window, walked in and then tried to use the same brick to break what turned out to be bulletproof glass.

Police say the man repeatedly tried to break the window protecting the front counter, and the brick bounced back on the third try.
