BILLINGS, Mont. -

A mother of four used a knife to stop a man breaking into her home Sunday morning.

According to Sergeant Shane Winden the incident occurred at 3:30 AM at a residence on the 3500 block of 2nd Ave. South.

Sgt. Winden says the woman was in the home with her children and her grandmother when the man began trying to force his way through the front door.

Police identify the suspect as 19-year-old Gered Archuleta.

Sgt. Winden says that as Archuleta broke through the door, the woman used a knife to stab him in the shoulder and the back.

Archuleta then retreated from the house and fled to a nearby residence. The homeowner there called police when they saw that Archuleta was bleeding.  

Archuleta was taken to a local hospital for treatment and then booked into the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on charges of "Aggravated Burglary," a felony, and "Partner or Family Member Assault," a misdemeanor.
