DECATUR, Ala. — A woman used “a pot containing hot grease” to defend herself after an armed man broke into a Alabama home last week, police said.
Larondrick Macklin allegedly attempted to burglarize a home in Decatur, officials said.
Macklin suffered burns to his face after the woman allegedly doused him with the scalding liquid.
Police later determined he was the “primary aggressor in the altercation.”
He was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree domestic violence.
After receiving medical assistance, he was taken to the Morgan County Jail.
He’s being held there in lieu of $300,000 bond.
