GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A would-be burglar was sent to the hospital early Saturday morning after the homeowner found him inside his home.

Officers say around 3:30 a.m. at 2962 B Red Cloud Lane the homeowner beat a 19-year-old man with his fists after finding him inside his home.

Charges are pending against the teen and include attempted burglary and minor in possession of alcohol. It does not appear the homeowner will face any charges because of Colorado's 'Make My Day Law."
