Police arrested two teens Monday evening accused of entering the home of a woman who responded with a firearm, shooting one of the alleged burglars in the arm.

Dayton officers responded at approximately 6 p.m. Monday to the home in the 200 block of Richmond Avenue.

According to a police incident report, the woman heard the two teens knocking on her front door, then the back, but did not answer the door because she didn’t know them.

She said she grabbed her .38 Special revolver for protection when the teens began to kick in her back door, according to the report.

They reportedly entered her kitchen and, “charged towards her.”

She fired one shot and one of the teens fell to the ground, then they both ran out the back door, according to the report.

The burglars ran away going north on Richmond and were seen by neighbors in the Homewood Avenue area, according to communications with the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center. A K9 unit was called to search the area but the teens could not be located.

A short time later a juvenile showed up at Grandview Hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm. His mother stated he was involved in the burglary on Richmond with another juvenile male, according to the report.

The other teen was located at a residence on Riverside Drive and arrested. Both will be charged with burglary.

The woman, 43, is not facing any charges.

Prosecutors will seek charges of rape and gross sexual imposition against an 18-year-old male and hope to present the case to a Montgomery County grand jury next week, a Dayton police sergeant said Wednesday.

Charles Owens was arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Dayton Municipal Court on sex charges involving a 5-year-old boy.

Owens, arrested Monday on suspicion of those charges, was released from a juvenile detention center in Tennessee on July 24 after serving three years, Dayton police Sgt. Larry Tolpin said, noting that the time served was not for a sex offense.

Owens is originally from Dayton. The offenses he is accused of committing are believed to have taken place three days after his release from the center, police said.
