Man Arrested After Attempting To Force His Way Into Home

An Anderson man had to brace his body against his front door to prevent an intruder from forcing his way in Monday night. At around 10 O'clock, 36-year-old Charles Durand allegedly tried to shoulder and kick his way through the door of the home in the 26-Hundred block of Ganyon Drive. The resident had armed himself with a handgun in case the man made entry, but he was able to hold the door despite at least 50 strikes from the outside. When an Anderson Police Officer arrived he reportedly saw Durand running from the yard and into the street. He ordered Durand to stop and Durand assumed a prone position for handcuffing, but then resisted and struggled. The officer got control of Durand with help from the victim and another man who had been driving by. He reportedly admitted to using a Gram of Methamphetamine minutes earlier.
