Lufkin, TX — In an odd twist, a Lufkin man is behind bars after he allegedly attacked the man who is believed to have just burglarized his home.
Shortly before 12:30 a.m., on Monday, an officer witnessed three men jump a fence to an awaiting vehicle. When the policeman tried to approach the suspects, they all ran from the area on foot.
Two of the three alleged burglars were caught shortly after running, and it was learned they had just broken into a house, stealing guns, clothing, a TV and other miscellaneous items.
A few hours later, at 3 a.m., officers were dispatched to the same area to reports of a disturbance. When they arrived again in the 2000 block of Lowry Street, they found the man who had been burglarized, Eddie R. Fletcher, 26, of Lufkin, had found and allegedly attacked the third man accused of stealing from his home.
Fletcher was arrested and is charged with assault. The three men accused of burglarizing his home, Terrance J. Harris, 23, Joshua R. Nash, 23, and Ishmeal M. Washington, 24, were all charged with burglary of a habitation and evading arrest.
