Homeowner Fights Back Against Intruder


A home was broken into Tuesday morning in Colorado Springs, but the owner put up a fight.

According to police, around 4:30 a.m. at 5292 Spoked Wheel Dr., the homeowner awoke and discovered a male intruder downstairs. The homeowner confronted the intruder, who struck the homeowner, causing a small laceration on his face. The intruder fled, but the homeowner was able to strike him on the back with a club before he escaped out the back door.

Police were called, but were unable to find the intruder. He has been described as a white male in his 20s, standing about 5'8. He was wearing a black t-shirt with blue jeans.

If you have any information that could help police, call 634-STOP.

    What does race, color or ethnic origin have to do with breaking the law? Is there something I'm missing here, maybe certain groups are "entitled" to steal???????

    That is not limited to Colorado Springs. It seems to me that it's mostly limited to unthinking people who have fun writing things so out of the mainstream that they irritate most people.

    A .44 Magnum would work better than a .357 Magnum. Doesn't matter what ethnic group he/she is. Lowlifes all.

    Wow, you people are amazing. How racist do you have to be to accept a criminal, as long as he's not Mexican? Glad I moved out of the Springs.

    A bullet between the eyes would have been more appropriate.

    This is a burglary, not a home invasion. A home invasion uses assualt to enter a home, when a resident answers the front door.

    It sounds like 357 MAG S.W. time. They make a much bigger hole than a club and you dont have to worry about them coming back or stealing from any one else. Just depends on how you feel about some low life taking what you worked,earned and paid for. Ask for it and I,ll do what I can to help you,steal it and your not going to make it out the door pal.
