Armed Homeowner Chases Burglars Away

More Video...

Quite a scare early Monday morning for both a victim and the criminals.

Lexington police say a woman spent some time with the two men who live at a home on Pinewood Court near Todd's Road. Police say after she went home, her boyfriend asked her about where she had been.

Police say her boyfriend and a friend then went to the home on Pinewood to confront the men who live there.

Police say the suspects kicked in the front door of the home and went upstairs.

Police say that's when one of the men who lives there came out of a bedroom with a gun and forced the suspects to leave.

We're told police know who the suspects are, but have not made any arrests. Police say they are trying to interview the woman involved, but she has been uncooperative.

    Joe you are right they should have held them until police arrived. I can now see why you thought that there were women living in the house because one of the videos above report it being women. They were the ones confused not you.

    Well, sorry for the confusion. Then HE should have held them until police arrived.

    More people need to stand up to the challenge.

    This is very, very scary for me and my husband since we live right next door! The whole thing woke us up last night and I actually saw the men jumping back into their car... It'll be hard to sleep tonight since they said they were coming back with more guns :(

    Joe from Lexington, two men entered the home of two other men. There wasn't any woman with a gun. The woman spent time with the guys who home was broken into, her boyfriend and his friend are the ones who broke into this home probably because he was mad that she was spending time with other men.

    I was thinking of getting rid of my gun (because more afraid of injuring myself) and trading it for a baseball bat. Maybe I should keep it. Thank you for the humor. Glad the ladies are okay.

    Todds Road and Woodhill is such a family friendly area to live....NOT!

    This is a perfect illustration needed to support the Second Amendment. Had the roommate not had a gun to protect herself, who knows what could have happened to her given the state of the men's mind. I don't see them on their knees any other way other than the ultimate equalizer. Had she only had a baseball bat or something like that, they could have easily overpowered her. No, she needed just exactly what she had. Fight crime. Shoot back.

    It's a wonder the victims weren't arrested for defending their lives with a gun.

    A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
