Brooklyn Thieves Mistake Bathroom Door for Exit, Easily Apprehended (Video)

Two Brooklyn thieves were caught mid-robbery after confusing a bathroom for an exit. The would-be robbery took place at Gourmet Buffalo Deli, and NYPD officers Mark Xylas and Favio Quizhpi found the two suspects beating an employee. When they yelled "POLICE! DROP YOUR GUNS!" both men made a break for what they believed was the exit.

Unfortunately, both suspects made the stupid mistake of trying to escape through the deli's clearly-marked bathroom. After realizing that their stupidity had cost them their freedom, both men dropped their guns and were arrested.

Police confiscated a .32 caliber Rossi revolver and a .45 caliber Hi-point semi-automatic weapon. 20-year-old Isaiah Henderson and 23-year-old James Gillespie were charged with criminal possession of a weapon, unlawful imprisonment, menacing and robbery.
