Wilmington man pretends to be drunk, scares away intruders with a gun

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Some quick thinking got a Wilmington man out of a tough situation early Saturday morning.

Around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, the victim came home and noticed his front door was open. When he entered his home, he saw two men standing in his apartment.

The man pretended to be drunk long enough to get to his safe and pull out a gun.

One suspect ran away and the victim held the other suspect at gunpoint outside his apartment. He then told the suspect to leave.

The victim returned to his home, but couldn't find anything missing.

Wilmington Police were unable to locate either of the suspects.
