A would-be robber ran afoul of an armed homeowner Monday, sheriff’s officials say.

The suspect, 26-year-old Carlos Solorio Gonzales of Yucca Valley, is accused of breaking into a house in the 7500 block of Joshua Lane shortly before 2:12 a.m. Inside, he was confronted by the homeowner, who was carrying a gun, Arden Wiltshire, a spokeswoman for the county Sheriff’s Department, said.

The 911 dispatch center got a call from the homeowner at 2:12 a.m. and heard a man yelling, “You’re dead, boy,” and “I’m going to blow your brains all over the house,” the call record from the county Sheriff’s Department shows.

The operator also heard a man saying he would give the other man a chance to walk out the door.

At some point, the robber and homeowner began a struggle.

“They start wrestling for the gun. The homeowner gains control,” Wiltshire said. “Once the homeowner gains control of the weapon, Gonzales jumps out of the living room window and runs.”
