A 21-year-old burglary suspect was in critical condition Monday after being shot by a resident in a Bensalem apartment building, police said.
Officers responded to the Franklin Commons Apartments on Bobolink Drive about 8:35 p.m. Sunday after a woman reported that a man had broken into her second-floor apartment and was masturbating on the deck, Bensalem police said.
The woman called 911 and fled to a neighboring apartment, while the man jumped out of a second-floor bedroom window and entered another apartment, police said.
The suspect, identified as 21-year-old Angel Suarez Medero, allegedly assaulted two people inside that apartment and was shot twice by one of the tenants. The Philadelphia Daily News reported that Suarez Medero is a successful jockey who raced often at Parx in Bensalem.
