Man fends off knife-wielding intruder during home invasion
A Metro man takes on a man with a knife and wins. Maurice Johnson was catching up on some sleep Thursday afternoon when his burglar alarm sounds. He awakes to a man in his house in the 4300 block of North Blackwelder.
"I see a guy in a big black jacket holding a knife about that size and he tells me basically turn the alarm off and give me money."
Johnson, keeping his wits about him, tells the man to follow him to the back bedroom where there may be some cash.
The suspect keeps the knife held tightly against Johnson as they walk through the house.
Johnson says he pretends to rifle through his drawer to get money but got his gun instead and fires a shot at the suspect.
The suspect takes off immediately. No word on if the suspect was hit.
