An act of vigilantism by a man whose teenage son was held at gunpoint while his home was being robbed resulted with his arrest.
Josh Hillyer, 40, of 4128 Citation Lane allegedly found one of the men involved in the March 1 invasion of his home hours later at a residence on Hunter Ridge Drive.
Hillyer allegedly struck him in the head with a police baton after the suspect refused to allow Hillyer to take him to the Lawrenceburg Police Station.
