Pasco deputies are searching for the man they say broke into a Land O' Lakes home before residents fought him off and chased him away.

It happened overnight in the Asbel subdivision when a man broke into a residence armed with a BB gun.

Detectives have not released a description of the man yet, but he was last seen running away on Quarry Badger Rd.

Deputies say the people inside the home got into a fight with him inside and were able to chase him away after he entered through the back door.


The people in the home have some minor injuries from that confrontation.

Deputies continue to search for the suspect as well as a motive. If you have any information on the case, please contact Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
