Father Tackles Alleged Burglar When He Hears Daughter’s Screams
Lincolnton, North Carolina – A father and homeowner “turned the tables” on a home invasion suspect and held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident happened Thursday morning at a home on Philadelphia Church Road. Officials say the homeowner was lying in bed when his wife and daughter returned home from a dentist appointment. A short time later, he heard his daughter scream and rushed to her room where he found an intruder.
The report states the father then “tackled” the alleged home invader – identified as 43-year-old Jason Kane Tillman – and held him at gunpoint until deputies, who were already in the area investigating other break-ins, got to the scene.
Tillman was arrested and charged with four counts of felony breaking and entering and one count each of attempted breaking and entering to a building, larceny from a building, and possession of stolen property.
He was taken to the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center and placed under a $51,000 bond.
No further information has been released.
