Homeowner Chases Off Burglar

A homeowner fights back today against a would-be burglar.

It happened around 8:00 this morning at a house on Rieck Road in South Tyler.

The suspect got into this house by kicking in the back door. The homeowner found him inside, and chased him right back out that same door, even hitting him over the head part of the door frame.

The homeowner continued chasing the burglar through the neighborhood, even after the suspect pulled a large knife on him. Eventually, the bandit got away.

Police say the suspect is a white male with a medium build in his early to mid 40's. He has short, light brownish-red hair and was wearing a green striped golf shirt and blue jeans.

If you have any information, call the Tyler Police Department.
