He hurls it at the window of the Renault Kangoo but the brick bounces back and strikes him in the face.
The hooded man was then arrested.
Homeowner Martin Craig, 32, said: “This nice person decided he would break into my car after many failed attempts karma came too bite him in the face.”
Mr Craig, who uses a wheelchair, added: “I didn’t even know it happened until 10.30 when the police knocked on my door to tell me they had caught someone trying to break into my car so I gave them all CCTV footage.
“I just thought ”it’s just gone daylight, how does he have the nerve to do it in plain sight?”
