    Homeowner gets Stabbed w/ Screwdriver During Home Invasion

    Man stabbed in home invasion | Journal News

    MARTINSBURG —Police are seeking the public’s help in apprehending a suspect who stabbed a man in the head with a screwdriver during a home invasion burglary Friday morning in Martinsburg.

    According to police, at about 5:14 a.m. Friday Trooper J.D. Schuessler, Sgt. K.E. Plumer and Senior Trooper Z.L. Nine of the West Virginia State Police responded to the area of Puppy Drum Lane in Martinsburg for a report of a burglary. When officers arrived at the scene, they saw the homeowner had sustained multiple wounds consistent with stab wounds to the head.

    The victim told police that a black male broke into his home and when the victim awoke to the man walking around inside the house, he and the suspect began a physical altercation.

    During the fight, the suspect stabbed the homeowner in the head several times with a screwdriver. Six stab wounds to the face and the back of the head were noted, police said.

    The homeowner said the suspect at one point put the screwdriver to his head and said it was a gun.

    At that point the homeowner grabbed the screwdriver and the suspect fled the residence. The homeowner was able to get to the door and saw the suspect, whom he described as a black male, about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build, leave the area in what appeared to be a red or burgundy sport utility vehicle, possibly a Jeep or a Bronco, police said.

    No other information was available and police said the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to contact Schuessler at the West Virginia State Police Martinsburg Detachment at (304) 267-0001.

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Good lord, screwdriver to the head?? Oww.....

    If someone breaks in there's no way they're getting that close to me or my wife unless they are able to sneak up to us without us waking or the dog barking.

    Ouch! And double Ouch! Six wounds from a screwdriver! Hope he's OK. Recommend a gun [keep it handy], a dog, and a better set of locks, IMHO.

    I'd recommend a handgun.

    a CHIN saw would get him back for poking you in the face with a screwdriver
