March 28, 2017
An Escambia County, AL, homeowner held a home invasion suspect at gunpoint in his living room until deputies arrived.
The Phill Road homeowner told the Escambia County (AL) Sheriff’s Office that his family was sleeping about 2 a.m. Saturday when they were awakened by the sound of breaking glass and realized that someone was inside their home.
The homeowner retrieved his handgun and went into the living room. As he cocked the weapon, the suspect came up from behind a couch asking the homeowner not to shoot. The homeowner’s wife called 911.
When deputies arrived, they found the suspect being held face down on the floor. The suspect, later identified as 37-year old Robert Ryan Delgadillo, was taken into custody without incident. During their investigation, deputies found an open folding knife believed to belong to Delgadillo.
Delgadillo was booked into the Escambia County (AL) Detention Center in Brewton with bond set $50,000 for a charge of burglary first degree. He is also being held on a violation of probation charge from an unrelated incident.
