On Sept. 3 around 8:30 p.m., a police officer responded to a fight on Doc Allen Drive reported by the woman who owned the house, according to a report from the Moab City Police. The responding officer apprehended the intruder, who was bleeding. The other man, who lived in the house with his wife, said that the alleged burglar had knocked on his door and attempted to come inside. The man told the intruder to get out of his house. The man was able to push the intruder outside of the house, but couldn’t secure the door, and the intruder was able to push his way back inside. He tried to dodge the man but the man was able to pin the intruder down and hold him there until officers arrived.

Police found a marijuana pipe at the scene, but were unable to determine whether it belonged to the man whose home it was or whether it had fallen out of the intruder’s pocket.

The intruder told police that the woman had told him her husband wouldn’t be home. He also said that the husband instigated the fight.

The intruder was taken to Grand County Jail and booked on simple assault, a misdemeanor, and residential burglary, a felony. He was also served with a temporary protective order against the woman of the house, who had previously reported him numerous times to law enforcement for messaging and emailing her. Officers had been unable to locate the intruder until he was apprehended.
