MILTON, Ill. — A Milton teenager was arrested earlier this month and is lodged in the Pike County Jail for his involvement in a home invasion and stabbing incident.

The Pike County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched at 1:39 p.m. Sept. 9 to a residence in the 100 block of East Pittsfield Street in Milton. Upon arrival, law enforcement officials conducted several interviews where conflicting versions of events were provided.

The reporting party and victim indicated he was at his residence when he opened his door to let his dog out when a masked individual punched him in the face. The physical altercation continued inside of the residence. At one point, the victim disclosed he was being choked by the masked individual. The victim said he grabbed a knife and stabbed the masked intruder, who eventually left the residence. 

The Pike County Sheriff’s Department conducted a criminal investigation and submitted their findings to the Pike County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.  

The Pike County Sheriff’s Department arrested Bryar A. DeJaynes, 19, on Sept. 18 on a warrant for the offense of aggravated battery.
