On 2-10-17 the Graceville Police Department received a 911 call from a female at 936 8th Ave advising that a male subject was inside the residence without permission.
Several family members had arrived at the residence to do some cleaning and found the door barricaded shut. One of the female family members went to climb through a window when she observed the male suspect looking at her from the bedroom.
The two male family members forced their way into the residence, where the male suspect tried to hit them with a large rock several times. The two male family members were able to disarm the suspect of the rock and held him until law enforcement arrived.
Upon arrival of the Graceville Police Department, the suspect was found to be in possession of jewelry from inside the residence that belonged to the family members, which valued over $300. There was also evidence of the suspect staying in the residence illegally over the past several days.
