KWTX reported: The break-in was reported just after 6:20 p.m. Aug. 17 in the 3800 block of Stillhouse Drive.

The caller said “a resident of the home was upstairs and heard what sounded like someone kicking in the front door to the residence,” sheriff’s Lt. Bob Reinhard said in a press release.

“The resident, armed with a handgun, encountered an unknown male inside the home and stated the suspect was armed as well,” he said.

Neither man fired and the would-be burglar ran out of the house and got into a vehicle parked nearby, he said.
