BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Two men are behind bars for aggravated burglary after the 30-year-old victim fought with both of them until deputies arrived.
The incident happened on Monday, Oct. 13 at a home on Tiger Bend during the early morning. The victim called 911 to report a burglary in progress.
"…The victim reported that a suspect attempting to gain entry into his residence with a crow bar," the deputy with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office wrote in the probable cause report. "While still on the phone, the victim advised that the suspect successfully made entry into the residence and the victim was in his bedroom awaiting assistance."
When deputies arrived on scene, they found three men fighting on the lawn in the front yard.
