Resident Confronts Alleged Intruder

Police say a resident confronts a masked armed man at his home and ends up in the hospital.

Jacksonville Police arrested 22 year-old Alan Webster.

Police claim on Friday Webster was wearing a ski mask armed with what they believe was a knife and confronted the resident.

Police say Webster assaulted the person then took off on foot.

They say after they issued a warrant for his arrest Webster would turn himself in.

He's been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He's in jail under no bond.

The victim was treated at a local hospital. No word on their condition.

    I actually know Alan and I'm appalled... well, not really. I rarely hung out with him. He was a friend of a good friend. I always knew he was messed up in the head, but I never thought something like that would happen. Oh well. Can you say bad judgement call???

    To Mike from Edenton, you are right in what you said. We need the death penalty on this low life punk.

    So sorry that this thug didn't meet a homeowner like me who keeps a loaded gun handy & can shoot very accurately...it would have saved the taxpayers his attorney fee and his free room and board.

    A Glock would have saved taxpayers a lot of food, housing, and health care expenses-not to mention the cable TV bills. Good job catching this thug!
