A city worker was able to fight off two men who broke into his South Side home Thursday, wrestling a gun away from one of them and shooting a suspect as they tried robbing him.

Police say Perry Pearce, a Chicago Water Department employee, was leaving his house for work around 6:45 a.m. when two armed men approached him, having apparently snuck in through a hole in Pearce’s fence, NBC Chicago reports.

“They cut a hole in the fence and stuck me up. One had a .38 and the other had a 9 mm,” Pearce told the Chicago Sun-Times. “They held me on the ground, outside for 20 minutes with a gun in my face and knocked me in the face with the gun.”
