Bridgeport man corners armed burglar at gunpoint

BRIDGEPORT – A Bridgeport man says he cornered a burglar in his home and held the man at gunpoint until police arrived.

David Archilla, 44, tells News 12 he was getting ready to go to work around 4:45 a.m. Friday when he came face to face with a burglar in his kitchen, armed with a knife.

The alleged burglar was identified as 33-year-old Luis Rodriguez, whom police later arrested.

Archilla says he held Rodriguez at gunpoint and that the man did not resist….

Rodriguez is facing a variety of charges, including possession of a deadly weapon.

Archilla says the incident reinforces his support of the Second Amendment.
