The male complainant advised that he was confronted outside and forced inside his home at gunpoint by a male. Once inside the home, a female resident walked into the living room and saw what was going on. While holding the victims at gunpoint, the suspect demanded that the male and female victim give him their money and phones.
The male victim and the suspect became engaged in a fight in the livingroom while the female called 911. The male victim was able to disarm the suspect during the struggle. JCSO Deputies were close by and upon arrival, the male suspect jumped out a back window in an attempt to flee. The window pane cut a deep gash in the suspects arm causing excessive bleeding.
