Son turned in by mother

THOMASVILLE — A man pulled a firearm on a home-invasion victim when he learned the woman was calling 911, according to the Thomas County Sheriff’s Office public information officer.

Shortly after noon Wednesday, a man identified as Tyler Keith Henderson kicked in the door of a home in the 2000 block of Stewart Road near Ochlocknee, said Capt. Steven Jones.

“He confronted one of the ladies in the house,” Jones explained.

While the suspect rummaged through the house and took items, the woman went to the second floor and called 911, Jones said.

“When the suspect found her, he pointed the gun at her,” Jones said, adding that the man then fled.

Sheriff’s officers arrived and took the woman and her granddaughter from the residence.

Investigators and other officers began an immediate search for Henderson. The search continued into the night and Thursday morning

Henderson’s mother called the sheriff’s office Thursday and said she would turn in her son.

“And she did,” Jones said, late Thursday afternoon.

The suspect is charged with burglary and aggravated assault. The latter charge resulted from pointing a firearm at the victim, the officer explained.

Henderson, 18, 4030 Ellen St., Ochlocknee, was denied bond and remains behind bars.
