Botched home invasion leads to arrest

Nancy —

A Crab Orchard man was arrested by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department after an early morning home invasion.
Anthony L Alcorn, 34, 1155 Ky. 39, was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault, and impersonating a police officer. 
On Friday at 5:53 a.m., the Pulaski County 911 Center received a report of a robbery at 326 Ky. 3189, Lot 3, Nancy, Ky.,  just west of Somerset. Upon arrival, responding units found the victim, Shaun Lige, along with two neighbors, holding the suspect down on the ground in the yard, according to the sheriff’s office.
The investigation by the sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division found that the suspect, armed with a BB pistol equipped with a laser, had approached the residence just as the victim was letting his pet out. As the pet went outside, it immediately began barking and the victim became suspicious. 
The victim looked outside to see a silhouette of a person and a laser pointing inside the home.
The victim then pulled the door shut and, at the same time, the suspect announced himself as the “police” and demanded they open the door, according to the sheriff’s department.
The suspect then allegedly forced his way inside the home and began firing the BB gun at the victim. The suspect was described as wearing a ski mask and light blue latex cleaning gloves.
After realizing the suspect was only armed with a BB gun, the victim then turned the tide on the suspect and chased him out of the home, according to the sheriff’s report. The victim armed himself with a handgun of his own and chased the suspect outside where he and the neighbors fought with him in the yard. 
The suspect received several minor injuries in the scuffle and was taken to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital where he was treated before he was taken to jail.
