Four robbery suspects are in custody after a bizarre attempted burglary last night.

According to Los Angeles Police Officer Norma Eisenman, at approximately 2:40 a.m. on Saturday morning a Los Angeles resident awoke and saw four suspects on her home surveillance system entering her house. She immediately called 911, and police and SWAT were on the scene within minutes.

One of the suspects immediately fled and was quickly apprehended. Another absconded into the backyard, but found himself fenced in.

The two remaining suspects convinced the homeowner to tie them up and identify them to the police as fellow victims. She obliged, tying them up before leaving her residence to talk to police, who she quickly informed of the remaining suspects’ plan.

The police decided to wait the bound suspects out, Officer Eisenman told the Los Angeles Times, and after some time the suspects “got tired of waiting” and emerged.

“They came out, still tied up, thinking that we were going to believe they were victims also,” Eisenman said. “That’s what you call felony stupid.”

They were arrested shortly thereafter, as was the suspect who had trapped himself in the backyard.
