Protip: If you’re going to commit a crime at least be either well rested, or fall asleep after your getaway.
Robbery suspect Kanyoni Sedekiya, 20, was arrested after he was found dozing at the scene, according to Abilene investigators.
“The victim escaped the apartment while the suspect was asleep and called police from a neighbor’s apartment,” the police statement read.
“Officers secured the area and the SWAT Team personnel arrived and were eventually able to negotiate” Sedekiya surrendering, it added.
Sedekiya had argued with his roommate before pulling a gun and demanding money, and “bound the man with tape and fell asleep inside the apartment,” the statement read.
An affidavit says that amid the verbal dispute, Sedekiya pointed the gun at his roommate and threatened to kill him, according to the Abilene Reporter-News. He was also accused in the document of stealing $80 from his roommate and breaking the roommate’s phone.
