NORTH PORT, Fla.- The sound of breaking glass started a North Port couple early Sunday morning.
Police say a man broke through the sliding glass door at a home in the 8400 block of Tropicaire Boulevard.
The suspect, 27-year-old Bobby Shears, confronted the homeowners who locked themselves in their bedroom. When Shears tried to kick in the door the couple escaped to a neighbors home.
Police found Shears sitting in a chair inside the home. He was holding a large knife. When Spears refused to respond to police commands a K-9 was sent in to disarm Shears.
Shears faces several charges including armed burlgary and resisting arrest.
