Burglar Stabbed In Home

KSAL StaffJanuary 20, 2015

Wichita police say a teenager stabbed a burglar in his home while his brother alerted authorities.

The suspect is hospitalized recovering from the stab wounds he suffered during the attempted burglary Monday. His condition was not released.

17-year-old Austin Schierkolk encountered the burglar early Monday in west Wichita. He says he stabbed the man in the neck and shoulder after they exchanged words. The fight continued until the man fled through a back door. At the same time, 15-year-old Luke Schierkolk was on the phone with police.

Austin suffered only minor injuries.

Sgt. Steve Yarberry says the suspect was arrested after he crashed a stolen SUV at a nearby apartment complex.

The boys’ mother, Tonya Schierkolk, says she’s grateful the boys knew what to do.
