Allen County Man Scares Away Home Invader

By  | 

Kentucky State Police want to find two men who tried to force their way into an Allen County home early Tuesday morning.

The alleged home invasion happened around 3 a.m. at Gordon Absher's house at 3440 Old Bowling Green Road in Scottsville.

Absher says someone rang the doorbell, and when he looked outside he saw two men with their faces covered holding shotguns. Absher opened his door, pointed a pistol at one of the suspects and then grabbed the suspect's gun. Absher says the two men ran down the driveway to their truck, leaving the shotgun and other evidence behind.

Police are looking for two white men in their early 20s, traveling in a small dark-colored pickup truck. Anyone with information should call Kentucky State Police at (270) 782-2010.
