Intruder Confronted With Sword

KSAL StaffAugust 14, 2015

A 17-year-old suspected of breaking into a suburban Wichita home early Friday morning was being treated for cuts after the homeowner confronted him with a sword.

An Oaklawn man called 911 shortly before 4:30 a.m. to report that “he was arming himself” because someone was breaking into his house.

The intruder was gone when a sheriff’s deputy arrived, but a few minutes later someone called 911 from a house a few blocks away reporting someone was bleeding.

Sedgwick County sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Lin Dehning says the teen was taken to a hospital and would be booked into jail after he was released.

Dehning says the teen was detained on outstanding warrants and could face an attempted burglary charge. The homeowner isn’t likely to face charges.
