ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - 44-year-old Troyle Aube, who police say tried to break into a Rockford home died Thursday morning.

Police say they arrived just before 2 a.m. to a residence in the 1800 block of Green Street in response to a home invasion call.

Both a man and a woman living at the home told police that Aube tried to force their door open. Residents said HE did break through a window, and started swinging a piece of lumber at them.

The man inside the home grabbed a knife from the kitchen to ward off Aube, who sustained stab wounds to his neck and shoulder area. After being stabbed, the attempted home invader tried to take off but collapsed outside of the home.

First responders attempted lifesaving measures, but Aube died at the scene.

The Rockford Police Department sent out a tweet around 3 a.m. Thursday about the incident:
