A Wisconsin man killed an intruder who broke into his home and attacked him, according to the Kenosha Police Department.

Officers responded to calls from a neighborhood on the city’s west side around 7:20 p.m. on Friday, September 16, for a “suspicious” person seen damaging vehicles and trying to break into homes, a the department said in a statement.

“The guy was going absolutely crazy, throwing rocks at cars, houses,” said WTMJ resident Jayme Raddatz.

Then the man “forced his way into one of the houses and attacked the owner”, police said.

Raddatz and his family were settling in for movie night when they noticed the commotion, WTMJ reported.

“He had his arm trying to open the door,” Raddatz said. “My neighbor was hitting his arm screaming for help.”

During the struggle, the owner killed the intruder, police said.

“As this was happening, some of my family members heard a loud thump and then a scream,” neighbor Alfredo Monroy told WISN. “The police had just come down the street, there were probably a dozen or more police here.”

Police did not say how the suspect was killed.

An investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Kenosha Police Department at 262-605-5203, or Crime Stoppers at 262-656-7333.
