Homeless robber assaults Leucadia homeowner

Encinitas Advocate:
An Encinitas family detained a homeless man who possibly attempted to break into and rob their home, sheriff's officials said in a news release.

Fred Weston, the 62-year-old homeowner of the one-acre property on the 500 block of La Costa Avenue, was awakened by his surveillance system on his property at about 5 a.m. on Oct. 20, according to a news release written by Sergeant Joe Tomaiko of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

According to the news release, Weston's property had been targeted several times in the past by suspects stealing copper cable and wire, leading him to set up the surveillance system.

Weston then grabbed a shotgun and went outside to check the property, eventually encountering a man in dark clothing who was attempting to hide, Tomaiko said. Weston ordered the suspect — later identified as Chuck Neil, a 43-year-old homeless man from Escondido — to stand up, show himself and start walking to the front gate of the property.

The two men then entered an altercation, according to the news release. Neil was able to grab the barrel of the gun, which Weston shot while it was pointed toward the sky, Tomaiko said. Neil then punched Weston "several times" in the face, breaking his nose and causing Weston to fall to the ground, face first. Neil then began choking Weston with the barrel of the shotgun against his throat.

    1. Wrong fool! Use deadly and brutal force to protect your own life and property, this is what Americans have been doing for a long time and what they do where the men aren't cucks.

  2. The story ends about half-way thru the encounter. How'd it end? Did the intruder run away and get caught by the cops? If the homeowner had blasted the intruder, would that have been excessive force? I assume once a physical confrontation ensues, the homeowner could have used the gun to protect himself. Maybe a baseball bat is the better tool to protect oneself in domestic situations, as guns are so controversial.

    2. All the result of our wonderful city council declaring Encinitas a "welcoming" city. Don't any of the five knuckleheads think about unintended consequences?

  5. Another unqualified gun owner who is lucky to be alive.

    Next time call 911 and let the pros handle it.

    1. Right plenty of time for that? Call 9-1-1 and wait 10 minutes? What a fool and I bet you live behind a big fence. Another feminized cuckhold tool. I hope that you don't have any children.
