Police Still Searching for Home Invasion Suspect

May 22, 2006 - Posted at 4:42 p.m. CST

DUNKLIN COUNTY, MO -- Imagine relaxing on your back porch one evening and when you came back inside your home, an intruder is inside.

That scenario unfolded for one Region 8 resident over the weekend. A quite evening in Dunklin County turned into a wild night over the weekend when Punkin Center resident Ronald Moody was attacked in his home by an unknown assailant.

"Mr. Moody put his left hand to fend him off and he noticed he had blood on his arm, so he began to think (the intruder) has something in his hand and that he was stabbed," said Dunklin County Sheriff Bob Holder, "Moody pulls out the pistol and start firing. He shot about three shots, but it is unknown if he hit the subject or not."

According to the Dunklin County Sheriff's Department, Moody described the man as a white male, 35 to 40-years-old, about 5'10" tall and weighing around 190 pounds. The intruder also was depicted with black hair, a week old beard and tattoos all over both arms, but his whereabouts are currently unknown. Moody was treated and released from the hospital with minor injuries.

"We have checked area hospitals and no one has checked in with bullet wounds or anything, so right now we are still at step one," said Holder.

The Dunklin County Sheriff's Department is continuing the investigation. If you have any information on this attack you are encouraged to call the Dunklin County Sheriff's Department at (573) 888-2424.
