The Oklahoma City Police Department said that they have arrested 21-year-old Shawn Brittain after being accused of breaking into a home in the middle of the night.

Brittain has been charged with one count of first-degree burglary.

He was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail, pending a bail hearing.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded on Sunday, at around 4:00 a.m.

Brittain walked into the home located in the 4000 block of S. Hudson after a door was left open.

The mother of the 7-year-old boy told police that the door was left open so that a family could enter the home.

The boy’s sister woke up due to the noise coming from her brother’s room.

When she entered her brother’s room, she was shocked to see Brittain lying on top of the boy.

The girl quickly called her mother, and they tried to pull Brittain off from the boy.

Brittain pushed them away and grabbed a statue.

He then asked for a knife and threatened to kill the entire family.

The mother called 911 and asked for help.

When Brittain realized that the mother called the police, he fled the scene.

Police arrested him near the home.
