Home invasion suspect says he was 'just kidding'

NEW CASTLE — Police are looking for a man who forced his way into a South Side home.

A Pollock Avenue resident told New Castle police he had heard someone knocking at his back door Saturday morning. When he answered, the resident told police, a man holding a small knife forced his way into the house, then grabbed a butcher knife from a wooden block.

The man said he fought the intruder, who ran out with the butcher knife.

The resident told police the man, who had left his hat behind, returned a while later and said he was “just kidding.”

A neighbor told police she had seen the man bury the knife in the snow off Phillips Street.

It’s been a unique week on the marriage front. Actress Jodie Foster married her longtime girlfriend, while a lesbian trio that wed last year, who bill themselves as a “throuple,” have announced they are expecting. What’s your take on alternative unions?

I’m against it. I believe in one man, one woman.
I’m OK with it. As long as they’re adults, they can marry whoever they want.
A lesbian “throuple?” Really? SMH.
