Local police have issued a warning after an intruder startled homeowners in the middle of the night.
Channel 2's Carl Willis found two cases in Forsyth County in which homeowners came face to face with a burglary suspect within hours of each other. In one case, a homeowner fired a shot at the suspect.
Yvonne Canty said she woke up to strange noises and a flashing light coming from her living room. That when she said she got the shock of a lifetime as soon as she stepped out of bed.
"There was a guy crouched right down there,” Yvonne told Willis, showing him where she found the suspect.
The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office said this was just one of the two rare cases in the county, which both took place overnight Wednesday, in which a burglar entered an occupied home and was confronted by the homeowner.
