Man, 70, foils break-in

July 20, 2010

A 70-year-old man used his cane to fend off an intruder on the east side of Indianapolis early Tuesday morning. Charles Jenkins said he was asleep in bed when he heard a loud crash in his front room just before 3 a.m. in the 2700 block of North Gale Street. He looked into the living room to see a man climbing in through the window. Jenkins grabbed his cane and hit the intruder in the head. The stunned suspect ran to a truck behind the house and fled the scene. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
