Toronto police have released a short security video online which appears to show a would-be thief, fail in spectacular fashion.

The black and white security video shows a young man throwing a rock at a car passenger window to try to break it – but instead – the rock comes back and hits him square in the face.

It was tweeted by Det. Marc Hayford with the Major Crime Unit in 54 Division in East York, who writes “perhaps, breaking into cars isn’t a good career choice for this guy.”

There has been no word on when and where this incident happened.
