East Texas Homeowner Subdues Attacker

posted on May 21, 2015

A Cherokee County, Texas, homeowner reportedly shot an intruder Tuesday morning after the man allegedly broke in and attacked her husband.

According to sheriff’s deputies, the intruder broke through the front door of the house and confronted several people in the home. When the husband came home shortly thereafter, the criminal attacked him at the back door. After the two fought for several minutes, the husband was able to get into the house and lock the back door. But the attacker got back in, and assaulted the husband again. The wife, who was on the phone with a 911 dispatcher at the time, demanded that the attacker stop. When he wouldn’t, she reportedly fired one shot, ending the attack.

At press time, the suspect was in the hospital in stable condition. Authorities plan to charge him with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault and possibly other offenses.
