A man held an intruder at gunpoint in his home Tuesday night while waiting for law enforcement to arrive, according to Colorado Springs police.
Jeremy Strong, 38, was relaxing with his family around 9 p.m. when he heard glass shattering and his wife screaming. A man had broken into his house, located on the 1900 block of South Corona Avenue, east of Southgate Road.
Strong stopped the intruder, holding him at gunpoint, police said.
Having been only two doors away for a similar incident when four men initially ran into a nearby home on South Corona Avenue, police responded to Strong’s house immediately.
