DEPUTIES INVESTIGATING AFTER SANDOVAL MAN INJURED WHEN INTERRUPTING BURGLARY AT HIS HOME

SANDOVAL — The Marion County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a string of events Sunday morning that resulted in a rural Sandoval man receiving a head injury when he broke up a burglary in progress while returning home.

The homeowner reportedly became involved in an altercation with the suspect outside the home where the homeowner was injured with what was described as a graze on the forehead by a reported gunshot. He was taken to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital for treatment.

The incident occurred at a home on Red Stripe Road just off of U.S. 51 south of Sandoval. A male suspect was arrested a short time later when deputies received a report of a man attempting to gain entry to a nearby home.

The suspect reportedly fled the second location on foot and into a field where he was attempting to hide when located and taken into custody by a sheriff’s deputy. No weapon has been found at this time.

Names are not yet being released as the incidents all remain under investigation. Deputies believe the suspect in custody was the only person involved in the incidents.

A third incident in the same area is also being investigated where an apparent attempt was made to steal a vehicle.
