NORWICH ― An armed man chose the wrong home to break into Monday morning, according to a Norwich police report.

Police said a husband and wife called 911 from their bedroom at 5:38 a.m., while struggling with a man armed with an assault rifle. One of the three children in the home at the time was also in the parents' bedroom during the fight, the report states.

By the time police arrived at their Cliff Street home, the couple was holding down the man, identified as 34-year-old Jevon Scholl. A shot had been fired into the ceiling during the struggle, but Scholl was the only person reported to be sent to the hospital for injuries.
