Deputies said a man trying to break into a Spartanburg home Sunday night struck the homeowner in the head with a gun before running away.
According to a Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office report, deputies were called to a Sunnyview Circle home after 9 p.m. Sunday after the victim reported a burglary.
The man said he heard a noise outside, got up to check on it and saw the screen had been cut out of his backdoor, according to the report.
The report said ten minutes later, the suspect forced his way into the home through the back door and the homeowner tried to push the door shut to keep him out, but the suspect forced it open and hit the man with the door.
Then the man tried to choke the suspect who in return, hit him in the head with a gun knocking him to the floor "dazed," according to the report. The suspect fled and the man was unable to give deputies a description of him.
