MUNCIE, Ind. -- Police believe an armed would-be burglar forced his way into a Muncie home, and then fainted. 

The suspect is now in jail and says he does not remember anything. 

"Never happened to be before. Never had any health issues. That's why it was so crazy," Jaron Johnson said. 

Police say Johnson, 18, and at least one accomplice forced their way into a home in the 700 block of East Dunn Avenue at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday. Once inside, he blacked out or fainted, according to police.

Johnson has a wound on his lip and said he had knots on his head. 

He faces a preliminary charge of burglary armed with a deadly weapon. He is currently being held on $20,000 bond.
