A Great Bend man told police Monday that a stranger with a 12 gauge shotgun came to his house demanding his property, but left after a brief struggle.

Police were dispatched to 1411 Park Ave. at 11 p.m.

Lt. Bill Browne said police don’t have a lot to go on, because the victim couldn’t identify the assailant. "He didn’t say what (property) he wanted," Browne said. The victim reported that he grabbed the shotgun and pushed the attacker away from the door. The armed man then ran from the area.
