(WFIE-TV) An Evansville man who held two home invasion suspects at gunpoint until police arrived shared his story with 14 News.

It happened about 10:30 on Wednesday night in the 1,000 block of Idlewild Drive.

22-year-old Paul Lukac and 24-year-old Justin Henschen are accused of breaking into John and Matt Fugate’s home, but those two suspects had no idea what was waiting for them.

A threat on his family, turned the soft-spoken Matt Fugate, into an armed protector.
