A man broke into an escape room in Washington state, the United States, and called the police for help, CNN reported on Wednesday.
The burglar broke the back door to get in, took a cell phone, TV remote, and a beer, and failed to find the way out. He tried to leave from the back door, but he had damaged it so badly trying to get in, said Rob Bertrand, owner of the escape room.
Although the man called 911 for help, he managed to escape on his own, only to run into a police officer who promptly arrested him, Bertrand added.
The burglar was charged with second-degree burglary, according to the Clark County Sheriff's Office.
Although damage was caused, Bertrand was delighted about the business' increasing fame. "We're going to start claiming that we're the only escape room in the nation that has 100 percent capture rate for criminals," he said.
Becoming increasingly popular in recent years, escape rooms require players to work together, solve puzzles, and try to escape from a designed room.
