LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man after he burglarized a home while three residents were sleeping.

Police say they were called to a home near the corner of N. 20th Street and Columbia Street Thursday evening after someone reported that a gun had been stolen from that location.

According to the arrest report, police reviewed surveillance video and saw 41-year-old David H. Clark approach the house with a handgun and enter the home "with the intent to commit a crime." 

While inside the home, Clark allegedly stole a pink .38 caliber chrome handgun, which he can be seen carrying as he exits the home.

Shortly after the investigation, police say Clark came back to the home and began arguing with one of the victims. Police say Clark fled out the back door of the home just before officers returned to the scene. According to the arrest report, police set up a perimeter around the home and a K9 apprehended Clark in a nearby tow truck.

Clark was arrested and charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, first-degree burglary, first-degree wanton endangerment and second-degree fleeing or evading police.

A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf when he appeared before a judge Friday morning.

"Can't shoot nobody with a fake gun," Clark said. "The gun's fake. I'll see you next court date."

He is currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
