Homeowners Find Stranger In Home, Keep Him Restrained Until Police Arrive

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX- A homeowner in Sherman was in for a scare this weekend when they found a stranger  inside their home. It happened Sunday afternoon at a home on Preston Drive.

The family apparently left a door open and later noticed it had been shut and locked. When they went upstairs they found 49 year old Brit Jones.

The husband confronted him and the two started fighting. Police say the homeowner was eventually able to restrain Jones.

"Mr. Jones ended up grabbing a lamp and swinging it at the homeowner and so he ended up tackling him to the ground and holding him until officers arrived on scene," said Sgt. D.M. Hampton.

Jones was booked into the Grayson County Jail on a charge of burglary.
