Norwood resident bests home invader with headlock

If only all home invasions could end with the suspect subdued and ready to be picked up by the police for a ride to the pokey. This was the fate of Norwoodian Brian Jones, 41, Saturday morning when he chose the wrong home on Ivanhoe to break into Saturday around 11:30 a.m. According the Enquirer, homeowner Antonio Barron went downstairs to investigate after hearing a “breaking sound.” After swinging a copper pipe at Mr. Barron that missed the mark, Jones found himself on the floor in a headlock while Mr. Barron’s girlfriend called the Norwood police. Jones is being held without bond at the Hamilton County jail.
