Put this one in the stupid criminal file.
This Sunday night, a would-be robber in Philadelphia and his accomplice approached a woman on the street and attempted to rob her of cash and her iPhone. As he struggled with the woman who was apparently unwilling to part with her phone, his gun discharged, striking him in the foot.
The two men fled the scene but the thief who shot himself was apprehended a short time later at a nearby hospital where he went to seek treatment for his wound. Police have not yet identified the suspect who is in stable condition at the hospital and under arrest.
Police report that the victim of the robbery was not injured and that they are still searching for the second suspect — who apparently left his partner to his own devices after their heist went down the tubes.
