BERLIN (AP) - Would-be burglars beware: Your intended victim may
have a black belt in judo.
Police in Germany's northern port city of Bremen say a
25-year-old thief sneaked into a house Wednesday night through an
open door and began rifling through jewelry in an upstairs bedroom.
He was promptly discovered by the homeowner. With a few deft
blows, the 39-year-old man overpowered the intruder and detained
him until police arrived.
Police said Thursday the suspect, who was not identified, was
carrying a knife and may be linked to other thefts. He was being
held in nearby Lueneburg.
