This one hit close to home — not for the homeowner but for the suspect who tried to rob the homeowner in the middle of the night. The suspect is being charged with burglary of a vehicle, but his greatest troubles came from the homeowner, Miguel Sandoval, who tried to warn the suspect that he had a gun.
The suspect was stealing a toolbox from a 2003 Ford F150 at about 3 a.m when he woke up the San Antonio homeowner with all the noise he was making. But after ignoring warnings from Sandoval that he was armed, the suspect started towards homeowner.
Sandoval fired 3 or 4 rounds from his rifle, and the suspect dropped the toolbox and fled the scene. But after showing up in a local hospital the suspect’s wounds cracked the case wide open.
Here is the original article from MySanAntonio,
Dennis Molina, 24, was removing a box of assorted tools from the bed of a 2003 Ford F150 at about 3 a.m. on May 6 when Northwest Side homeowner Miguel Sandoval, 32, looked outside, according to the report.
Sandoval had heard noise on the porch of his house in the 1500 block of Texas Avenue, and he saw and heard the doorknob move as someone tried to open the door, according to police. He had been the victim of theft in the previous two weeks, he told police.
Sandoval got a rifle and opened the laundry room window before he looked out and saw Molina and another man on the back porch, he said. He yelled, “You better leave, I have a gun,” according to police.
But instead of leaving, Molina began to walk toward Sandoval, who started shooting, the police report states. Sandoval told police he did not know whether Molina was armed.
Sandoval shot three or four times at Molina, who ran toward the rear of the property and possibly jumped a fence, according to police. Molina dropped the box of tools as he fled, according to the report.
The other man, who has not been identified or apprehended, ran away down the driveway, the report said.
There was no blood at the scene, but a few minutes after police arrived they learned Molina had walked into Metropolitan Methodist Hospital with a gunshot wound.
“It was passed on that it appeared the person shot had been hit in the anus or somewhere close to that area,” the report stated.
Molina was rushed to the San Antonio Military Medical Center for surgery to remove the bullet.
There have been no reports of the homeowner being charged so it looks like the police are seeing this as a viable case of self-defense, but really it’s the suspect that should be paying the homeowner for the free colonoscopy.
