“He came through my backdoor, just walked in. He had a firearm,” Callahan said. “He said well find your wallet in five seconds or she’s next as he was holding a gun to my face.” – Excerpt from original article reported by WREG3
A young man sat in his living room while his mother was upstairs. He heard a noise and then saw a man walking into his living room with a firearm. With no regard for his surroundings or the fear he was causing, the man threatened the young man and his mother. The victim gave the intruder what he could easily find and, thankfully, the man left without harming the residents.
It turns out this man had been a suspect in multiple burglaries and home invasions in the surrounding area. Thanks to some home security cameras, he was caught soon after the incident. This man with no regard for life terrorized his last family.
