Man suspected of trying to break into apartment building gets stuck in wall, has to be cut out

SEATTLE -- A man suspected of trying to break into a Pioneer Square apartment building got stuck between the duct work and a wall Tuesday night -- and firefighters had to cut him out.

A man who lives said there had been robberies and thefts in the building lately. When he tried to get in the laundry room, the door wouldn't budge, and noises were heard inside, so he called the cops.

When the door was opened, a man was found stuck in the wall.


When firefighters finally got him out, they say he was very uncooperative. Cops handcuffed him, before paramedics took him out on a gurney for treatment of minor cuts and bruises.
