An Ottumwa man faces a felony charge after police say he entered a home and attempted to stab an occupant on Saturday.

53-year-old Sores Soram has been charged with first-degree burglary, a Class B felony.

According to court records, Soram entered a residence on Ogden Street in Ottumwa and armed himself with a kitchen knife. Soram tried to stab an individual in the home but was forced out by his daughter.
