    According to a complaint filed by Brownwood police detective Brian Rice in Brown County Court-at-Law Sam Moss’ court:
    Rice was called to the 1600 block of Bordon Street, where witnesses said they saw five people chase a male out of his home and across his yard. The five had sticks, poles and a pistol, and when the man who was being chased had nowhere to run, he stabbed one of the assailants in the side and continued to run.
    The man who was being chased told police several people entered his home without his consent and threatened him. The man said his girlfriend told him he needed to run because one of the intruders had a gun.
    A witness saw three of the suspects get into a car and drive away. Officer Kris Salazar stopped the car, and one of the occupants told police he’d entered the Borden Street home and had a confrontation with the resident. Police recovered a loaded semi-automatic pistol.
