One of the men hit the homeowner on the head with a hammer before they took off on foot.
The homeowner told police that he may know one of the two men.
“I let him do some work around the house and I paid him for it in the past,” the homeowner said.
He said one of the burglars asked him for his gun.
“I realized it was right next to me,” the homeowner said. “I grabbed it, pointed it at him and started yelling at him. Should have shot him but he took off running.”
