Rockford man charged with aggravated burglary
From Staff Reports
A Rockford man was charged with aggravated burglary after he allegedly broke into a Louisville home while the resident was there.
Daniel Charles Dawson, 33, Triple Oak Street, Rockford, was arrested Thursday night at his home by Blount County deputies.
He was jailed on $10,000 bond pending an appearance at 9 a.m. Jan. 21 in Blount County General Sessions Court.
According to the police report, Elizabeth K. Herron, Leslie Lane, Louisville, called 911 to report a burglary in progress at 9:22 p.m. Thursday at her home.
On arrival, officers found a window screen with a large cut in it on the ground and the front door of the home ajar. Upon entering the residence, officers found Herron crying hysterically while hiding in the bathroom.
She told officers she was sitting in her living room when she heard someone at a window in an adjoining bedroom. She went to investigate and saw someone standing outside the bedroom window.
At this point she ran into another bedroom, locked the door and called 911.
She then heard someone call her name and looked out to see Dawson standing in a bedroom. She knows Dawson due to a pending aggravated assault case that she has against him.
Dawson fled the scene prior to the arrival of officers. A K-9 dog was brought in but could not track the suspect.
Dawson was later taken into custody at his home. Herron picked him out of a lineup.
