Boone County deputies responded to 23000 block of Schunemeyer Road near Centralia to investigate a suspicious person incident at a home on July 25 at 12:44 a.m.
Boone County Joint Communications advised deputies that the resident reported someone who was walking around the property threatening him and hitting the windows of the house.
The resident had a female present hiding with him.
When deputies arrived the front door was open and a bleeding Brandon Harrison, age 32 of Steelville, exited the home.
A post from the Boone County Sheriff's Office on Facebook said the male resident and female were located nearby.
The investigation revealed that Harrison and the resident are relatives. The female who was present is Harrison’s estranged girlfriend.

He was later released and arrested for first-degree burglary and two counts of fourth-degree domestic assault.
