Robbery Thwarted


A Tallahassee couple got a rude awakening this morning by an armed robber.

Tallahassee police say around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning an armed suspect kicked in the back door of 416 Belmont Road.

Once inside the home, the male resident and the armed gunman got into a struggle. The gun went off sending bullets through the roof.

Officials say the female resident then became involved in the struggle and helped to get the gun away from the suspect. He then ran off, but was caught and is now in custody.

An eyewitness is expected to identify the robber.
