Injured Burglary Suspect Returns To Tenn. Store

(AP) Athens police said a burglary suspect who was cut when he entered a convenience store through a shattered glass door returned to the scene two hours later to ask officers for help. Police said a 21-year-old man will be charged with burglary when he is released from the hospital.

Officer Chandler Rollo said he was at the store waiting for a manager to arrive with a key after the break-in when the blood-covered suspect approached him Christmas Eve.

The suspect required dozens of stitches in his hand and ankle.

Police said a couple of cartons of cigarettes, valued at $36, were taken.
