Benalla police Crime Investigation Unit Sgt Shannon Murphy said the 18-year-old male deliberately smashed the window in Bridge Street at 3.30am this morning.
“He then fell inside, cutting himself severely on the broken glass,” Sgt Murphy said.
His screams of pain were heard by a cleaner at a business nearby and he called an ambulance.

“He’s cut himself to shreds,” he said.
Sgt Murphy said he would be interviewed in relation to criminal damage when he was released from hospital.
