BURGAW, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina teenager has been arrested after authorities say he used an axe to break into a woman’s bedroom.
Pender County Sherriff’s Office says 18-year-old Tyler Turner kicked down the front door of a home near Burgaw and used the axe to break through the resident’s bedroom door. Deputies received a report of a burglary early Tuesday morning. When they arrived to the home, they found Turner and an uninjured elderly woman at the scene.
Deputies say Turner was arrested on multiple charges including first-degree burglary.
Turner was taken to a hospital to treat minor injuries following an unrelated confrontation he had earlier.
He was taken to the county jail with a bail set at $330,000. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney.
