18-year-old man gets seven years for aggravated burglary in Middletown

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- An 18-year-old Franklin man will spend seven years in prison for the aggravated burglary of a Warren County woman’s home.

On Oct. 28, 2013, authorities said Austin Wickersham approached a woman in her garage on Renaissance Park Drive in Middletown while she was putting her lawn mower away.

Wickersham then held her at knifepoint with the blade close to her face.

When the woman screamed, she alerted neighbors and caused Wickersham to flee to a nearby residence.

Middletown police later tracked him down and arrested him.

Wickersham was sentenced Monday.
