Just before 3:30, a resident at the 800-block of Mountain View Drive found "Jacob Sherman" inside their home. Sherman allegedly broke into the house armed with a knife and was destroying property. He then began throwing kitchen knives and other objects when the resident confronted him.
When deputies arrived, Sherman barricaded himself inside for nearly an hour. He was finally taken into custody and is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism, being under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest. His bail is set at $50,000.
