Intruder killed in botched home invasion identified as Sydney personal trainer

The man who died during a home invasion in Sydney’s southwest has been identified as personal trainer Brad Soper.

Harrington Park resident Francois Schwartz was released without charge after the intruder died in his home early on Sunday.

The death occurred after Mr Schwartz woke to his dogs barking about 7.30am and “challenged a male intruder located in the lounge room”.

A fight broke out and Mr Soper lost consciousness, went into cardiac arrest and later died.

Police are waiting for autopsy results to work out if the father-of-one used excessive force during the confrontation.
