Valley Springs, CA — A Valley Springs man was injured after confronting a trespasser at his neighbor’s residence at 4304 Hartvickson Road.

Joe Brum saw a male subject across the street with a flashlight and went over to check on his neighbor Wednesday evening during the eight o’clock hour.

Brum says that he took the suspect to the ground and attempted to take him to his neighbor’s door step to call the Sheriff’s Department.

The suspect escaped Brum and fled to a field behind the neighbor’s house. An investigation into the incident is ongoing. Contact the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department if you have any information, at 209-754-6500.
