(JOHNSON COUNTY) - Authorities in Johnson County responded to a home invasion Saturday morning where the suspect told officers he was chased into the home to scare its homeowners.
WISH TV8 reports that officers responded to a residence on the 4000 block of Tarry Lane after hearing reports that the homeowner was fighting with someone in the home.
When police arrived, they quickly detained 54-year-old Scottie Allen Turner, who told officers he had suffered injuries from his encounter with the homeowner, according to a police report.
Officers learned from the homeowner that his wife walked into a room in the home and said there was someone in the house. The two heard something downstairs and located Turner.
