A Watertown man fought off intruders who broke into his home early Tuesday morning.
Authorities say the man tackled an intruder who was armed with a baseball bat and had kicked in the front door of his Clay Street home.
The two actually ended up falling off the front porch and on to another suspect who was standing outside.
A third suspect was waiting in a nearby car.
The victim managed to get away from the attackers while his girlfriend called 9-1-1.
As a result, Watertown PD arrested three Carthage men, 46-year-old David Hache, 23-year-old Rodney Baker and Robert Forsythe, charging all three with first-degree burglary.
