Police say an elderly Ohio man awoke as a burglar was trying to smother him with a pillow.
Police say the suspect fled.
Police later arrested 39-year-old John Riggs Jr. and say he was bleeding from a facial wound.

Riggs was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary.
It's unclear whether he has an attorney.
