PERRY TWP. — A man wanted for breaking into a Perry Twp. house during a home invasion has been booked into jail on preliminary felony charges.
David Adams, 41, was shot by the homeowners and later located miles away, according to Perry Twp. police.
Adams, who was arrested at Miami Valley Hospital around 1:30 p.m. Oct. 13, is being detained at the Montgomery County Jail on charges of aggravated burglary and two counts of felonious assault.
Officers were first called to reports of a burglary in progress at a home in the 5800 block of South Diamond Mill Road around 5 a.m. Tuesday.
The suspect, who was only identified as a man, broke into the house and began assaulting the homeowners, said Perry Twp. Public Information Officer Brian Douglas.
During the altercation, one of the homeowners, who was also not identified, got a handgun and shot the intruder, Douglas said. The suspect, later identified as Adams, then jumped into a car and drove away from the scene.
The homeowner, Ramond Isaacs, told News Center 7 he was asleep in his bed when he heard the intruder attack his wife, then started to attack him.
“He hit me probably 25, 30 times,” Isaacs said. “He was on my back and I reached around and shot him and he went running. I shot again as he was leaving.”
Isaacs said the intruder made an odd, and false accusation that he was responsible for raping the intruder’s brother.
“He broke in through the dog door. And then he was saying something about raping his brother. I don’t know what the hell he was doing,” Isaacs said in a 911 call to dispatchers, obtained by News Center 7 in a public records request.
Around 7 a.m., police located the man, naked and suffering from a gunshot wound in the area of Old Dayton Road and North Lutheran Church Road, which is about six miles south of the incident on Diamond Mill Road.
The suspect was transported to an area hospital for treatment but Douglas said his condition was not known. Both Isaacs and his wife were also transported to area hospitals for observations.
Police do not believe the suspect in the home invasion knew the homeowners.
Additional details about the investigation were not released. We’ll continue to update this story as we learn more.
