BROCKVILLE – A south-end homeowner ended up in a shoving match with an intruder in his home Friday morning (July 1).

Brockville police say the man was woken up by loud sounds just before 7 a.m. coming from his kitchen and found a stranger standing there.

There was a “shoving match” between the homeowner and home invader, police said.

Officers later arrested a drunken 22-year-old man and charged him with being unlawfully in a residence.

Despite the struggle, there was no injuries or damage, according to police.
