The man was one of three men who had burgled the apartment in Saint-Jean in the early hours of Friday last week. The men were disturbed by someone living in the apartment and escaped by jumping off a four-metre high balcony.

One of the burglars hit the ground badly. His accomplices took him to a nearby park where they abandoned him as they made their escape. The man was found to be seriously injured and died the next day in hospital in Geneva.
