A young man who robbed a Stavropol law firm where he was working as a handyman fell into a next-door kennel for police dogs as he tried to flee the scene through an open window, investigators in southern Russia said.

The man, who already had a long rap sheet, was drunk when he committed the robbery and fled in panic when he heard a noise outside, the local branch of the Interior Ministry said in a statement. He fell onto the premises of a police station right next door.
