An Elliotsville Road man who attacked and hogtied a man he believed had broken into his home will not face any criminal charges, but the alleged burglar has been indicted on a first-degree felony.

On Thursday, an Athens County grand jury indicted Nicholas Mallison, 21, of Athens, on the charge of aggravated burglary. Mallison is accused of entering William Stanley’s Elliotsville Road home and stealing two gaming systems.

As The Messenger previously reported, Stanley left his house on Nov. 29 for only about 10 minutes when the alleged burglary occurred. Upon his return, Stanley noticed his property was missing and heard a noise coming from the back of his house. There, he saw a man escape through a back window. Stanley was unable to catch the perpetrator but believed the suspect was Mallison, who had allegedly been at Stanley’s home earlier in the day.

Stanley called 911 but was told deputies were not immediately available to respond. That’s when — according to Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly — Stanley took the law into his own hands and drove to Mallison’s home where he confronted and physically attacked Mallison.

Stanley hogtied Mallison, placed him in the back of his car and drove home. When deputies arrived on scene, Stanley handed Mallison over to them. Mallison was unconscious and was taken to the hospital for treatment for his injuries. Kelly said Mallison was unconscious due to intoxication, not from injuries received from Stanley.

Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said the entire case was presented to the grand jury on Thursday and the grand jury only returned an indictment against Mallison who was charged with aggravated burglary because he allegedly was carrying a firearm at the time of the alleged incident. If convicted, Mallison faces a possible 11 years in prison.

Blackburn said the grand jury has the power to indict whomever they wish in a given case on whatever charge may be applicable and that the grand jury opted not to indict Stanley on any charges related to his attack on Mallison.
