BOONE COUNTY - A Boone County man thwarted off home invaders Friday night after he grabbed his handgun when he heard a ruckus at his front door.
Boone County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a home on the 5300 block of S. Ponderosa St. in Boone County at 10:38 p.m. Friday and contacted the man, who said he was in a back room of his home when two unknown men entered the front door.
The resident told deputies he then armed himself with a handgun and went to confront the invaders.
The resident described one of the suspects as a black male, wearing dark clothes and a ski mask.
When the suspect saw the resident with his gun, he and his accomplice ran up the stairs of the home and into a room, where they escaped out of a window and onto the roof before running away.
No one was injured and no items were reported stolen from the home.
