3 suspects kick in wrong man's door, flee when he shows up with a gun

Three Iowa men are facing charges after they broke into an area man’s home and fled when they were confronted by an armed resident.

Dubuque Police responded last Thursday to a pre-dawn home invasion call that led to the arrest of three 20-year-old men– Hunter Poole, Laterian Williams, and Antonio Vilchis– on second-degree burglary charges. The homeowner told police he heard someone slamming his door just after midnight, reports KCRG, an act that sent him to retrieve a handgun.

When the resident returned with the weapon, the men, who had entered the home, fled.

Police say the trio, who was apprehended a short time later, had intended to assault an unidentified man thought to be dating Williams’ girlfriend but kicked in the door of the wrong residence.

As of Wednesday, none of the men were listed in the custody of the Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office.
