Burglar escapes deputy's home

A Logan County reserve deputy fired at a burglar Monday, but missed the man, who fled the deputy's house. The deputy was at home in the 300 block of E Mansur about 8:30 a.m. when he was confronted by a burglar, said Capt. Richard Stephens of the Logan County sheriff's office. The burglar attacked the deputy with a knife from the deputy's kitchen. The deputy fired one shot from his service handgun but missed, and the burglar fled, Stephens said. The deputy, whose name wasn't released, was treated at a hospital and released, Stephens said. Guthrie police detained a man near Fogarty Elementary School, and the school was on lockdown briefly. Police confirmed the man's story and released him Monday afternoon.
