WATERTOWN, S.D. (AP) - Watertown police have arrested a man who allegedly broke into a pawn shop but left with nothing after punching two dogs that confronted him.

Authorities say 20-year-old Christopher Bain was arrested Wednesday. He’s charged with intentional damage to property and burglary.

The would-be thief broke a window at Lester’s Gun and Pawn to gain entry early Tuesday, only to be confronted by the dogs.

Police say he punched the dogs to get away, and fled the business empty-handed.
