Burglar wakes elderly couple, runs away before being caught by police

Posted by wlpo on September 2, 2016

One of the scariest things has to be awoken in your home by an intruder. That nightmare scenario happened to an elderly La Salle couple Thursday morning.

A woman living on 4th Street frantically called the police saying she was awoken by a man in her house that had pushed her husband and ran out with some of the couple’s property. La Salle Police were at the house quickly and not even a half hour later arrested 18-year-old Tyler Cannon at his home in La Salle.

Officers say they found some of the couple’s stolen things at Cannon’s place. The teen was arrested for home invasion, residential burglary and aggravated battery to a senior citizen.

He was taken to the La Salle County Jail.
