Sounds like you already have drilled a hole there so I would just get the next biggest drill bit and drill it more. You might even need to use the next biggest bit after that. Once you drill the head off then you can usually take it apart more until you can get to the screw and use pliers to turn it out.

Hope this makes sense.
