MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- A teenager used a stun gun to threaten a boat owner at a Mooresville marina, police say.

The victim told police he was awoken by someone on his boat at All Seasons Marina around 2 a.m. Sunday.

The man chased off two teenagers and pursued them until reaching the end of the dock. One of the teens then allegedly threatened the victim with the stun gun, telling the owner to stay away.

The man wrote down their vehicle's license plate number before the teens drove from the scene. A DMV check showed the vehicle is registered to a Cornelius address. Officers there told Iredell detectives they are familiar with the driver and gave his information to the sheriff s office. Detectives also viewed surveillance footage from the marina.

After a failed first attempt, Iredell deputies found 17-year-old Bryce Patrick Burns at the Cornelius address.

Police say Burnds admitted to the crimes but would not identify the second suspect.

Burns is charged with trespassing, larceny, assault with a deadly weapon and more. He was placed in Iredell County Detention Center.
