Man Uses Curtain Rod to Protect Himself

Sarah ReppMarch 11, 2019

A Salina man was not seriously hurt in an incident in which he used a curtain rod to defend himself.

Police say on March 10th 51-year-old Lance Viar was upstairs in a bedroom taking a nap at his home in the 600 block of S. 9th Street.

An acquaintance kicked in the back door and went upstairs into bedroom, armed with a taser type weapon. The man started to threaten Viar, who grabbed a curtain rod to use as a makeshift weapon. The taser wielding intruder pulled out a hatchet and forced Viar down the stairs with him.

As the two men exited the house Viar escaped and quickly ran to a neighbor’s house for help.
