MANCHESTER - A man had to wrestle with an intruder in his home until police arrived Sunday night.

Police said Steve Gott was investigating in his basement after he noticed the light was on and the door slightly open.

Gott found a man - later identified as Tobiah Scott, 29 of Manchester - hiding behind the boiler with a flashlight and a screwdriver.

Police said Gott was wrestling with Scott as they arrived to prevent him from leaving.

Scott was charged with burglary and was scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
