STAFFORD, Va. (WUSA) -- A man fought back after three teens broke into his home and assaulted him early Tuesday morning.

It happened in the Widewater Village at around 1:58 a.m. in Stafford County, police said.


"Three male suspects gained entrance into the residence, physically restrained the female resident and then made the husband walk through the house identifying valuables. The male victim was also assaulted numerous times during this time period," police said in a news release.

After about an hour of being held hostage by the teens, the man noticed that they had split up and grabbed a kitchen knife, police said.

"Fearing additional attacks and fearing for the well being of his wife, the male victim challenged the suspects and a struggle ensued. During the struggle two of the suspects were stabbed by the victim and all three suspects fled the residence," police said.

The victim called 9-1-1 and police rushed to his home. They found one of the suspects still in the neighborhood and took him into custody.

The other suspect ran home. He was then taken to the hospital by his mother to be treated for a stab wound, police said. They took him into custody shortly afterward.

The third suspect, Terry Adolfo Welch, age 18, turned himself in at the Stafford County Sheriff's Office later Tuesday morning.

The Sheriff's Office is also investigating the possibility that these suspects may have been involved in other home invasions in the region, too include the one that happened in the same subdivision on Monday, May 21, 2012. This is an ongoing investigation.
