DECATUR, AL — An Alabama woman reportedly threw a pot of hot grease in the face of the alleged armed burglar who broke into her home on August 1, police say.

After police were called to a domestic dispute in Decatur, officers found Larondrick Macklin, 31, at the scene with severe burns across his face.

Investigators say that Macklin was the "primary aggressor in the altercation" and believe that the woman acted in self-defense, according to the Decatur Police Department.

AL.com described the suspect as the woman's ex-boyfriend, but police have not commented on the relationship between the two.

Macklin allegedly entered the woman’s residence with a firearm, which prompted her to throw the grease, the Decatur Police Department said in a statement.
He was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Macklin faces two felony counts of domestic violence and burglary, Fox News reported. He is being held in the Morgan County jail, and his bail has been set at $300,000. If convicted, he could face a penalty of up to life in prison.
