Skull-masked armed robber foiled via Machete.
Wearing a skull mask, and wielding a gun, a man burst into an Orlando house early Tuesday morning demanding money and pills.
At one point, the fiance of a women threatened with the intruder's gun, walked out from the back room hiding a machete behind his back, and then confronted the intruder.
Upon then being confronted with the machete, the intruder fled outside, firing back several times at the knife-wielding persuer.
Officers searched for him at the scene, and a subsequent phone tip led deputies to a nearby dumpster, where they found 36-year-old Neil Johnson, his mask, and a semi-automatic weapon.
Johnson, is being held at the Orange County Jail without bond, facing a charge of armed occupied burglary with a firearm.
On a side note, during the arrest, a deputy was bitten by one of the K-9 dogs involved, but not seriously hurt.
