Buncombe Co. Home Invasion Stopped

Updated: Monday, April 29 2013, 10:09 PM EDT

Neighbors hear a gunshot next door and run to help break up a home invasion. It happened around 10 p.m. Sunday at a mobile home park on Emma Hills Drive. Deputies arrested Kwan Pearson, Jr. of Asheville and charged him with first degree burglary.


Pearson allegedly burst into the home of Camille Pearson and her boyfriend. Neighbors say they got a call for help. As they ran across the lawn, they heard a gunshot. Mike O’Rourke said he began pounding on the door and Camille opened it. He found her boyfriend on the floor with Pearson in a choke hold. O’Rourke and another neighbor took over holding down Pearson.


Deputies won’t confirm the details of the break-in, but their report shows Pearson forced the door open. He’s in the Buncombe County Jail under $50,000 bond.
