GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said they were led on a chase by two burglars, one of whom ran through a stranger's home in an attempt to get away.

Greenville County deputies said the burglary was reported at a home on Seyle Street Tuesday afternoon and as they arrived, they saw three people running from the house.

Deputies began the chase on foot, following one man through someone's home on Adger Street, according to the suspect's arrest warrant.

The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Timothy McClellan, ran into the home, slamming the door on a deputy's hand and assaulting the homeowner, according to the warrants. Deputies said they were able to stop McClellan, who had stolen electronics from the Seyle Street home.

"A dude came running through, and we told him to get out of here, and soon as I went to shut the back door, another guy came running through. And the cops were chasing him, and he tried to shut the back door,"said Vicki Mote who lives in the house.

Meanwhile, deputies located 22-year-old Quadivine Gary during a nearby traffic stop and was identified as one of the suspects, deputies said.

Deputies did not say if they identified or located the third suspect.

Gary and McClellan were charged with second-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, resisting arrest and petit larceny.

McClellan was also charged with resisting arrest with assault, first-degree burglary and first-degree assault and battery.

McClellan is out on bond, and Gary is still behind bars.
