Video shows man repeatedly hurling rock at impact windows in robbery attempt

Southwest Ranches home withstands burglars repeated break-in efforts

SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla. – A man was caught on video attempting to break into a home last week in Southwest Ranches.

Surveillance video shows the man, dressed in blue jeans and a black jacket, hop a side fence and walk toward the back door of Eloy Roman’s home.

The would-be burglar attempts to pick up a paver or rock and throw it through windows. The hurricane-proof impact windows are able to withstand the repeated hurls.

Confident no one is home, save for Roman’s barking dogs inside, the burglar then tries to pry open the back doors with a crowbar.

“This person did not care,” Roman said.

The efforts lasted for several minutes until the burglar finally gave up. Roman and other residents said this has happened more than once lately.

“We also need our neighbors to be more vigilant," Roman said. “I mean, these crimes are occurring, and we need people there.”
