Burnsville/Lake- ville Sun-Current, Bloomington, MN, 12/9/98
Thursday, April 1, 1999
Residents of a Burnsville, Minnesota, house were rocked
awake shortly after 1 a.m. by a man who repeatedly rang the front
door bell and then kicked in the door and came inside. After a male
resident armed himself and closed the bedroom door, the man pushed
it open and punched the resident in the nose. As the two wrestled,
the intruder proclaimed, "I don't care if I die." Soon he was going
after the female resident of the house. The attacker began choking
her and then pushed her head through a closed window, breaking out
the glass. When her tormentor came at the woman again, the male
resident fired a shot, hitting the intruder in the leg. The wounded
home-invader left to seek help at a hospital where he was arrested
and charged with first-degree burglary.
