Braydon Smith, told ABC11 that he was on the phone with his mom when the suspect entered the home through a window.
He spoke with ABC11 about how he fought Hall off.
“He pointed a pellet gun at me that was located in our house. I knew that it wasn’t loaded so I just sat down and got in my closet like he told me to,” Smith said. “He went into the living room to grab my phone to make sure I didn’t call the 911 or anything. When I saw him try to put it in his pocket. I grabbed my machete off of my wall and went to hit him. I hit him in the back of the head like right here.”
