Resident Holds Home Invasion Suspect At Bay With Shotgun
May 26, 2013
A Brewton man held a home invasion suspect at bay with a shotgun early Sunday morning until deputies could arrive and make an arrest.
The suspect, identified as 20-year old Glenn Phillips of East Brewton, was allegedly walking along Travis Road about 2 a.m. when he came to a house, kicked in the door and entered, according to Escambia County (AL) Chief Deputy Mike Lambert.
A dog inside the home cornered Phillips, giving the resident time to retrieve his shotgun and call 911. The victim held Phillips on the floor with the shotgun until deputies arrived and arrested Phillips without incident.
Lambert said Phillips was not armed.
Phillips was booked into the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton on a charge of burglary.
