A Tuesday morning break-in led to a suspect suffering multiple injuries by a meat cleaver, according to the McAlester Police Department.
Kaleb Oss, 20, of McAlester, was arrested after a woman found him standing over her bed Tuesday morning in her apartment at the Westridge Village Apartment Complex at 910 West Choctaw, according to McAlester Police Captain Don Hass.
Hass said the woman woke up to Oss standing over her with a gun before her son came into the room, grabbed the gun and started to fight with Oss.
Hass said the woman went into the kitchen to grab a meat cleaver and returned to her bedroom and started to swing the meat cleaver at Oss, striking him several times.
The gun was a C02 powered air pistol, according to Hass.
According to Hass, Oss was set to be flown by medical helicopter to Tulsa for a skull fracture and multiple lacerations. The son is currently undergoing surgery for a laceration from the meat cleaver that occurred during the fight.
