A Johns Hopkins University student defended himself from a would be burglar who broke into his apartment at 1am last night. As he confronted the burglar he lunged at him, he took quick action with the katana he brought with him to investigate. The burglar suffered lacerations to his upper body as well as a partially-severed hand, he later died at the scene. Students have had their off-campus apartments broken into before at the Baltimore college, which has caused concern with many of the students.
The home had four undergrads living in it who already had a Sony PlayStation and two laptops stolen earlier in the week. The suspect had priors for breaking and entering says the police. The student who confronted the burglar is currently in police custody until it will be decided if he will be brought on charges or not. To me it seems like a clear case of self defense, I’m sure he will be cleared of any wrong doing. It’s good that the students have stood up to these burglars who are stealing from them, let this be a lesson to all the burglars out there.
