A Smith Road resident defended himself from a burglar early Monday morning.

Smithville Police Officer Scott Davis, in his report, states that "On Monday, September 22nd at 3:15 a.m., I was dispatched to 274 Smith Road in reference to an attempted break-in. Upon my arrival, I made contact with the complainant, David Reses, who stated that he was home when a male Hispanic with a mask over his face and armed with a black gun, kicked in the front door. When the suspect got near the complainant's bedroom door, the complainant (Reses) struck the suspect in the head with a steel pipe. The suspect fled in an unknown direction of travel."

There was damage to the front door and a lock but apparently nothing was stolen from the residence.
