CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (AP) – Police say a neighbor used a golf club to stop and disarm a shotgun-wielding man after a home invasion in central Pennsylvania.
Chambersburg police say the neighbor, Keith Giles, used the golf club to knock down 25-year-old Kevyn Rideout as he ran from a home he robbed Friday night.
Police have charged Rideout with using a sawed-off shotgun to rob a 17-year-old boy who lived in the home. Police were alerted to the robbery and arrived to find Rideout down and subdued by Giles, who had also taken the shotgun from Rideout before officers arrived.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Rideout, who faces a preliminary hearing Sept. 6. He’s charged with robbery, aggravated assault and weapons charges.
