OCEAN CITY, Md.– Ocean City police say the victim of a burglary held the suspect down on the floor at gunpoint until officers arrived on the scene.

Thirty-one-year-old Joshua Luke Delp of Sinking Springs, Pa., allegedly entered the victim's home located on the 1700 block of Baltimore Avenue late Friday morning, police said.

Authorities say the suspect entered through the unlocked front door and walked into the victim's bedroom where he assaulted the victim. Police said the victim then struck Delp, grabbed a shotgun that was hidden nearby, and asked a roommate to call the police while he held Delp down on the floor.

Delp has been charged with fourth-degree burglary, third-degree burglary and second-degree assault. He was seen by a Maryland District Court commissioner and released on $10,000 bond.
