Chino Hills – A Chino Hills homeowner shot and wounded an intruder after a frightening surprise attack on Wed., June 25.
The 18-year old intruder, Raiveon Reenay Wooden, allegedly broke into the home and was hiding in the man’s garage in the 2800 block of Brookside Drive in Chino Hills.
According to a Chino Hills Police Department news release, the homeowner/victim reportedly went to investigate the intrusion at about 2:30 a.m., armed with a handgun. When he approached the garage, he was attacked by Wooden and stabbed multiple times. The victim, in an effort to protect himself and his family, shot Wooden twice.
The Chino Hills Police Department was called to the scene, and both men were treated at local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
Wooden, who was apparently the ex-boyfriend of the victim’s daughter, was booked into the West Valley Detention Center for investigation of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and burglary. He is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
