Guilford County man gets gun pointed at face

SUMMERFIELD, N.C. — Two men were arrested after being accused of breaking into a Guilford County home and pointing a gun at a man’s face.

“I guess I should’ve been more scared, but at that point. I was just too angry and upset that he was leaving my house with my stuff in his car,” said Lehman.

Lehman came home on his lunch break yesterday to find two men stealing his stuff.

“My 55” tv was in the back of the bug and my first thought was immediately that I was being robbed,” said Lehman.

Right away he called 911 and stayed on the phone with dispatchers the entire time.

“At one point one of the robbers was coming around the back of the house holding two computer monitors that he was adding to his collection there,” said Lehman.

That’s when he chased the two men who ran off, leaving their car in his driveway, said Lehman.

Within minutes one of the men came back to get their car.  Leham tried to block him, while holding a shovel for protection.

“At that point he pulled out a nine millimeter, which I now know was fully loaded, and he put it up in my face and at that moment I dropped the shovel.  I stood down and he took his car,” said Lehman.

Lehman’s description helped detectives with the Guilford County Sheriff’s department track down two suspects. 

Andrew Marcus Ard, 24, and Josiah Martin Capps, 19, were arrested in connection to the crime.

The pair is also accused of breaking into two other nearby houses.

“They was working the neighborhood.  They was going one right after the other and apparently I was the third one and they caught up to us,” said Lehman.
