Home Invader Looking For Woman Finds Armed Citizen Instead

posted on July 22, 2015

A 55-year-old Corpus Christi man was at home early Monday morning when 40-year-old Robert Smith forced his way inside. Upon finding the homeowner, Smith accused him of assaulting a woman and claimed that the homeowner was holding her unlawfully. He then grabbed the homeowner by the throat and demanded to search the home. 

As the two walked through the residence, the homeowner was able to retrieve his pistol and force Smith out of the house. Once outside, however, Smith choked the homeowner again, prompting the homeowner to fire several warning shots into the air. Smith then attempted to regain access to the home, and the homeowner fired at him, striking him once in the leg. 

Smith was arrested for burglary of habitation with intent to commit aggravated assault and is being treated at a local hospital. According to police, no woman was found in the house, and the shooting is being treated as self-defense.
