MATTOON -- Police say a man's plans to break into a business fell through. 23-year old Maverick Bowman faces attempted burglary charges. He's currently receiving medical treatment.

Police found Bowman injured Thursday, lying outside Little Mexico Restaurant on Broadway Avenue. They say he had a backpack filled with burglary tools. They also noticed a rope hanging off the side of the building.

Police say he tried to climb down the side, lost his grip and fell two stories through an awning. Bowman will have a court date once he's out of the hospital.
