The man used a brick or rock to shatter the store’s front glass window, police said, but was less sucessful when attempting to break the bulletproof glass window around the front counter.

The video shows the man throwing the brick or rock, which bounces off the glass and hits him in the head.

The man laid on the ground for a few minutes before eventually getting up and leaving, police said.

Police are asking anyone who recognizes the victim, or “knows someone with a suspicious head injury,” to call 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or the Regional Investigation Division-Central at 301-390-2160.
