ORLANDO, Fla (WOFL FOX 35) - A man is due in court Wednesday morning accused of breaking into a home in Orlando. The suspect quickly learned he had picked the wrong house when the homeowner pulled out a gun, all while hooked up to a dialysis machine.
The incident occurred Tuesday morning at the Cumberland Apartments in Orange County. Deputies say the suspect cut open a screen door and entered the victim's patio. That's when the 64-year-old homeowner grabbed his dialysis machine and his gun.
The victim asked to remain anonymous, but he did share his account of what happened. "That's why I pulled the gun and tapped the window to let him know, I've got a gun. And then he took the advice and jumped back over the rail and got out of there," the homeowner explained.
Investigators say the suspect, 24-year-old Jonathan Herd, ran after being seen. He was later arrested nearby and will now face burglary charges.
