According to the Florida Times-Union, the 22-year-0ld victim contacted the police via text message just before 2 a.m. to say he had opened his front door when he saw somebody approaching and acting as if he had a gun in his pocket. When this person started entering the home, the resident ran to his bedroom, grabbed a sword and stabbed the intruder in the stomach.

The suspect fled the home, but was later found after police received a report of a man with a stab wound turned up in a nearby gas station. The victim positively identified the suspect, and police arrested him. A hidden bag of marijuana was found on his person.
