A Putnam County man kicks an intruder out of his home and police are left looking for the suspect.
It happened Wednesday afternoon on Haning Drive. Police say a man got into the house through a window, while the homeowner was downstairs watching TV.
The intruder made the homeowner empty out his pockets and threatened to shoot him if he didn't give him what he wanted, but the victim didn't buy it. That's when he fought the intruder off and kicked him out.
