A Farmingville resident didn't take too kindly to his home being burglarized Monday afternoon.
The homeowner stabbed a burglar who was attempting to flee through the backyard of the home on Cedar Oaks Avenue, police said.
The homeowner, whom police did not identify, arrived home at about 2:15 p.m. and saw Alex Debono, 20, of Miller Place, exiting the window, police said. The homeowner grabbed a knife from his car and "confronted the intruder," who was also armed with a knife, police said.
The fundraiser, which Inman calls 'Let's Build a Goddamn Tesla Tower,' has a goal of $850,000. Inman states that the property is listed at $1.6 million, and the Shoreham non-profit Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe has received a matching grant from New York State of up to $850,000. If the fundraiser reaches $850,000, the total with the matching grant would be $1.7 million, enough to purchase the property.
