The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says Hall faces charges of breaking into a home to burglarize it. Authorities say the home invasion occurred Friday morning and that Hall was chased away by the 11-year-old, who struck him with a machete.

The boy was home alone. Hall later sought hospital treatment for head wounds but slipped away Friday evening, prompting questions about how closely he was guarded. It wasn’t immediately known if Hall has an attorney.
