Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Ocean City Police say a burglary was thwarted when the victim overpowered the suspect and held him at gunpoint.

According to reports, 31-year-old Joshua Delp entered a home on the 1700 block of Baltimore avenue last Friday morning through an unlocked front door. Reports say Delp then entered a bedroom and assaulted the victim.

That's when police say the victim fought back, striking Delp and grabbing a shotgun hidden nearby. Authorities say the victim's roommate then called Police.

Reports say the victim was able to hold Delp until police arrived.

Delp was arrested and charged with third and fourth degree burglary along with second degree assault. He was released on $10,000 bond.
