Bradenton home invasion thwarted by resident
BRADENTON -- A person who apparently was intent on invading a Bradenton home with a knife was thwarted by the resident, authorities said.
The home invasion attempt occurred at 11:33 p.m. Saturday in the 600 block of 21st Way East, according to a Bradenton Police Department report.
The suspect, who was known to the resident, was attempting to gain entry through a window when the resident confronted him, the report states.
The victim stated the suspect was holding a knife and threatened him. The suspect fled before police arrived. When a sergeant made contact with the suspect over the phone, he confessed to attempting to pry the window open with a knife but denied threatening the victim. Arrest warrants are pending, and the victim was unharmed, the report said.
