Chattanooga Father Fends Off Second Home Invasion In One Week

posted on November 14, 2015

Three days after being awakened by burglars breaking into his home, and two days after buying a handgun, a Chattanooga father used that handgun Thursday morning to stop a home invasion and attempted armed robbery in his bedroom, according to press reports.

Security cameras recorded video of four masked men breaking into the home of Andrew Buckland of Hixson, Tenn. Two of the men proceeded to the couple’s bedroom, where they sprayed Buckland in the face with mace, threatened him with a tire iron and demanded money. At the time, the Bucklands’ 6-year-old daughter was asleep in a nearby bedroom. 

Following the suspects’ demands, the couple got down onto the bedroom floor. From there, Buckland was able to retrieve his handgun, which sent the suspects fleeing uninjured but empty-handed. Buckland believes the same crew may be responsible for a string of other crimes in the neighborhood. No suspects have been arrested yet.
