Florida robber doesn't make a clean getaway


A home invasion victim turned the tables on an armed robbery fighting back with the closest weapon he could grab.  It just happened to be a bottle of glass cleaner.  

When a robber with a gun and crowbar stormed into 66-year-old Jacques Baillargeon's apartment, he didn't just sit back.  Before the robber could grab any cash or jewelry inside the apartment, Baillargeon grabbed the first weapon he saw.  It was a bottle of glass cleaner and sprayed it in the robber's face.  The stunned robber dropped his crowbar and ran away.  Baillargeon called 911 and told the dispatcher the story.  

Now, the clean-faced, 29-year-old Nathanel Smith is behind bars after confessing to the robbery.
