A man suspected of attempting to burglarize an apartment Friday was apparently not quick enough - and his intended victim came home and caught him in the act.
Stephenville Police Chief Roy Halsell said a Tarleton State University student entered her apartment at The Grove apartment complex and stumbled upon an intruder about 11:30 a.m.
“When police arrived at the scene, they noticed the front door of the apartment was partially open,” Halsell said. “The suspect was inside and had the victim backed into a corner.”
Deontre Tremmelle McKinney, 22, was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation. He is being held in the Erath County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
