See the Face of Suspected Burglar After Homeowners Fought Back

It involved a stun gun.

A 19-year-old suspected burglar chose the wrong house to invade last week.

This is the face of Michael Maxwell (below) after he was beaten, kicked and shot with a stun gun by Palm Bay, Florida, homeowners defending themselves against him and a group of at least three others, WTSP reported.

Maxwell was arrested and held under $51,000 bond at Brevard County Jail Complex with charges of home invasion robbery with a firearm or a deadly weapon and four counts of battery. A 17-year-old was served the same charges as well.

WTSP reported police saying Maxwell had to be taken to a local medical center to be treated for the injuries he received during the home invasion.
