A man fell from the fifth story of the Vistas San Marcos apartment complex Wednesday afternoon after allegedly attempting to rob one of its residents.
The San Marcos Police Department received a report that a male was burglarizing an apartment, said Sgt. Chris Tureaud. The suspect's condition and any pending charges are currently unknown at this time.
“The resident came home and found his door locked, and the perpetrator went out the back on the balcony of the fifth floor and tried to shimmy his way down, but then he apparently lost his grip and fell to the ground,” Tureaud said.
Starflight landed in an empty lot near Chipotle to bring the suspect to University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin, said Jeff Clark, San Marcos Fire Department battalion chief.
