Tulsa Police say a man tried to break into a house Saturday evening, but was subdued by homeowner in a botched home invasion.
According to Captain Steve Odom, the incident occurred at Admiral Boulevard and 33rd West Avenue at approximately 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
The homeowner told officers that he heard a knock on his front door and when he answered it, he was greeted with a pistol aimed at his head, reports said.
The gun was held by Edward Vanderlind, 19, whom barged into the home demanding belongings, Odom said.
Odom said after becoming distracted for a brief second, the homeowner and his guest were able to subdue Vanderlind and call police.
Reports said Vanderlind, whom appeared to be under the influence of substances, was transported to a Tulsa area hospital to be treated and was not placed under arrest.
