It was just after midnight on a September morning when one of the residents of a Florence Township, New Jersey home discovered an intruder trying to enter through the garage. A scuffle ensued, during which the intruder stabbed the resident with a knife. It was at this point that another resident retrieved a handgun and opened fire on the intruder, hitting him in the arm and sending him fleeing.
Police were called and, aided by a K-9 unit, tracked the intruder to a nearby apartment complex where he was discovered hiding in a closet. He was arrested and faces burglary and assault charges.
