Police said Ronald Hetzel, 41, allegedly broke into a neighbor's home in the Southern Highlands neighborhood by opening a window and struck the owner over the head with a wooden guitar and a porcelain toilet bowl lid during a confrontation, the Las Vegas Sun reported Tuesday.
Investigators said Hetzel, who was displaying "symptoms of excited delirium," also repeatedly tried to strangle the homeowner.
Police responded to a report of a man throwing objects out of the home and arrived to find Hetzel sitting on the curb. They said the suspect was not wearing a shirt and was "very hostile" toward an officer.
Hetzel, who attempted to flee but was tracked down and caught by a K9 officer, was arrested and charged with home invasion, burglary, attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon and battery with substantial harm.
The homeowner was treated for his injuries at St. Rose Domincan Hospital's Siena campus.
