Two men were hospitalized after a man confronted a burglar inside his Lexington home early Tuesday morning.
Police say it started when a man broke into a home along Race Street around 3 a.m. A man inside confronted the intruder, and the two men got into a scuffle. The resident stabbed the burglar in the side, but suffered a wound to the head during the struggle. The intruder made it out into the front yard were EMTs found him.
EMS took both men to UK Hospital. Officials didn't have any information on the extent of their injuries.
There was a woman and a small child in the home at the time, but they were not injured.
Police have not determined what, if any, charges they will file.
