Lexington resident Dereck Oldham says he wasn't sure what was going on Monday morning just before 10:00.

Oldham says he was awoken to loud banging at his front door. By the time he realized what was going on, an armed man had kicked in the front door of the home on Stillwell Avenue and came into the home. Oldham came face-to-face with him just outside of his bedroom.

"I yelled, 'Hey!' and he took off," Oldham said.

Oldham says he has two other roommates who were not home at the time. He says he can't think of any reason why someone would break into the home.

Oldham described the suspect as a black or Hispanic male standing about 6'1" tall, wearing a red and white hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, brown gloves and a white mask. Oldham also said he had a small automatic handgun.

Lexington police on scene confiscated drug paraphernalia from the home but are not sure if that was motive for the invasion.

    To bad Derick did not shoot the scumbag and kill him. To the rest of you people you should be put aginst the wall too, Thinking that this man is at fault, he was asleep in his home when some scum bag broke in, and you want to blame him like he has done something wrong, The only thing he did wrong was not kill the scum bag. Derick go get a shotgun and if you are prevented from owning a gun get a chainsaw and next time the scumbag will not get away.

    Drugs seem to be a good reason for someone to want to break into someone's home!That's bad luck to have the cops come and they find drug paraphernalia!
