A hapless burglar broke into an 'escape room' game from which he could not then escape, leaving him no choice but to call 911 on himself. Rye Daniel Wardlaw, 40, allegedly broke into Vancouver’s Northwest Escape Experience, a center for team puzzle games where players work out how to exit a room.

But lacking both a team and common sense, Wardlaw became trapped. So he called the police to come and rescue him, reported KATU-2, citing court documents. "He apparently didn’t know how to use the lock on the front door and was stuck," Tamara Bertrand, who owns the escape room, told FOX 12.

Heavily armed men in helicopter free notorious French inmate

  Heavily armed men in helicopter free notorious French inmate A notorious French criminal serving 25 years for murder made an audacious escape from prison by helicopter. It was the second daring escape by Redoine Faid, who once blasted his way out of a different prison with explosives hidden in tissue packs.

So, he called 911 , and told law enforcement he was calling from the escape room because his home was being burglarized. Rob says the burglar opened a door, pushed over lockers, destroyed flowers, then came in and made himself at home.

No one wants to call for help in an escape room , especially if you've just broken into one. All of this, including the original damage to the back door, apparently caused Wardlaw to be unable to escape , so he called 911 .

“I feel violated,” said Rob Bertrand, who owns the room with his wife. “We’re a small business. We put our heart, soul and money into this place to make it work. Our goal is to bring fun to families and businesses, and it doesn’t feel good to get taken advantage of.”

Citing an affidavit, Oregon Live reported Wardlaw was spotted by a Clark County deputy walking away from behind the center at around 4 a.m. He reportedly denied being near the business despite having called 911 to report being stuck inside.

He estimated the hole to be about 8 inches by 10 inches (20 centimeters by 25 centimeters).

Wardlaw then claimed he went inside the building because he is homeless and was looking for shelter. He said he opened a lockbox which had three keys inside. Using one to access an electrical room, he punched a hole in a wall which led to the bathroom of the Northwest Escape Experience.

After entering another nearby business with an unlocked front door to use the bathroom and eat a burrito, Wardlaw returned to the hole he made in the electrical room wall.

Upon entering the Northwest Escape Experience, he took a cellphone from the front desk, which he later used to call 911 after becoming stuck. He told officers he ran away there from a burglary of his home. He also broke the back door handle while trying to leave.

Wardlaw is due in court on July 20.
