An 18-year old Hilton Head Island man was arrested Wednesday on a burglary charge in connection with an attempted home invasion last month.

Szady and two others were kicking the front door when the 29-year-old male occupant answered, the release said. They began to hit the victim in the head and face but did not enter the home, according to the release. They left in a dark-colored, four-door vehicle. Nothing was stolen.
