Brookline Man Fights Burglar During Home Invasion

A Brookline homeowner turned the tables on a would-be burglar who broke into his home.

Dorjian Anderson, 31, and a single father of seven, says 23-year-old Christopher DePaolo kicked open his door. When the suspect got to the top of his steps, he and Anderson got into a fight.

Eventually Anderson grabbed some extension cords and hog-tied him. He and a friend held DePaolo at gunpoint until police arrived.

DePaolo was treated at UPMC South Side for a fractured right arm before he was taken to the Allegheny County Jail. He faces burglary, assault and criminal mischief charges.

Anderson said he had the opportunity to shoot DePaolo, but didn’t because he saw him before in the neighborhood.
