Police say Akron homeowner turns table on home invaders
An Akron homeowner turned the tables on two home invaders who broke into his house with guns, demanding money.
Police said the owner of a home on 2nd Street SW called police at 11 p.m. Thursday to say two men burst in -- armed with a shotgun and a gun -- and demanded money.
The resident and a guest scuffled with the intruders and were able to grab the guns away.
The two intruders were injured in the scuffle and were taken to local hospitals. No shots were fired. The two suspects were still in the hospital late today with injuries that were not life threatening, police said.
Kevin Chambers, and Franklin Rodgers, both 24 and from Akron, each face two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated burglary when they are released from the hospital.
The homeowner was not charged. Police are still investigating, but Lt. Rick Edwards said it appears to be a case of self-defense.
