Cops: Clermont man’s shower interrupted by home invasion

CLERMONT, Fla. – A man was startled early Wednesday when he heard a knock on his front door while showering before two men forced their way into his home, Clermont police said.

The man was showering before 3:15 a.m. when he heard the knock and went to open the door of his home on Sundown Lane, according to a police report. He said he noticed three people outside the door and when he opened it, two men came from a dimly lit area and pushed their way through the door, police said.

Police said the man left his home and knocked on his neighbor’s door. His neighbor then called police.

Officers arrived at the victim’s neighbor’s home and the neighbor told police that the man had knocked on his door, according to the report. Police then went to the victim’s home and knocked on his door, but he didn’t answer, officers said.

Police later returned to the victim’s home. The man, who said he had been the victim of a home invasion with a firearm, told them that he didn’t answer because he thought the suspects had returned, according to the report. 

Officers said they found a BB gun on the man’s living room floor, which was right next to his front door.

The man had suffered a cut to his right upper arm and another to his chest, police said. Police said the victim recognized one of the men, but did not remember his name.
