A Romanian robber was caught after he fell into a cesspit beneath an outside toilet while being chased by police. Police were pursuing the 30-year-old, from Moara Vlasiei village, Ilfov county, after he allegedly robbed a teenage girl. He had managed to run away by jumping a few fences and climbing over some roofs untill he hid in an old lady's toilet. But he was found there by the owner who needed to use the toilet during the night. When he tried to run away the toilet's floor collapsed and he fell through the hole into the cesspit below. A policespokesman said: "It was a really smelly business: we had to clean the robber and give him new clothes before even talking to him."
A cesspit is a hole or tank in the ground into which waste water and sewage flow.
