CLEVELAND,Ohio–A man residing in Cleveland managed to fend off a burglar who entered his house when his wife was present alone on Friday, following the husband’s assistance to the suspect with car troubles.
Verdi Adams said, “I’ve never had a problem the entire time I’ve been here. My wife woke up the last couple nights screaming.”
The suspect, Khaalis Ricardo Miller, 45, was arrested and taken to the Cuyahoga County Jail on aggravated burglary charges on the same day, according to a police report.
Verdi Adams explained to WOIO and the police that the suspect arrived at their door at approximately 9:30 a.m., requesting aid with starting his vehicle. The wife, Angela Adams, informed the man that her husband was absent, but she would notify him about the situation upon his return, as per the authorities.
Verdi Adams informed the police that he assisted Miller after he came back home, but several hours later, Miller returned and began knocking on their door. He argued that his automobile still required assistance, and when Verdi Adams came out to assist, Miller entered the house and locked the door, according to the victims.
Angela Adams was still inside the house when Miller began to move upstairs to where she was located.
The couple’s surveillance video, which they provided to WOIO, corresponds with the police report.
Verdi Adams revealed that he kicked the door in and engaged in a physical altercation with the suspect, ultimately forcing him out of the house. Parts of the confrontation were recorded on the surveillance footage provided by the couple.
Miller was arrested later that same day, and he is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
