CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WRAL)
A home invasion suspect is on the loose after authorities said an 11-year-old boy fought him off with a machete.
North Carolina authorities said Jataveon DaShawn hall broke into the home though a window, and used a pellet gun to force the 11-year-old into a closet. But the boy was able to get out, grab a machete, and strike Hall in the back of the head. Hall fled when he realized he was bleeding. Police caught up him at a nearby hospital, but later nurses found his bed empty.
U.S. Marshals are now searching for Hall.
