UNION, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Two men tried breaking into the Union Senior Center on Tuesday, but police said they were not able to get away because one of them was found stuck in a window.

Officers said they arrived to the North Gadberry Street building about 11:30 p.m. to find legs hanging out of a window.

Police said the man, identified as 32-year-old Jimmy Rhinehart, was stuck between the window's metal bars, requiring help from firefighters and paramedics to get him out.

Upon further investigation, police said Rhinehart threw a brick through the window to break in. According to police, Rhinehart broke in because he had not eaten in three days.

A second suspect, 47-year-old Kenneth Lipsey, was also at the scene and taken into custody, police said.

After he was treated at the hospital, Rhinehart and Lipsey were both charged with burglary.
