A Nacogdoches man is recovering behind bars after being stabbed while trying to break into a home.
The break-in attempt happened at an apartment complex in the 4100 block of North St. just before 1:30 Saturday morning.
Nacogdoches Police say Keenan Blount, 22, was trying to force his way into the home. In an act of self defense, the resident took out a knife and stabbed Blount. Blount then ran from the scene, but was later found by police.
He was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for his injures. He has since been released and booked into Nacogdoches County Jail.
