A former Chargers special-teams star got into a terrifying altercation in Florida, according to a published report.

Kassim Osgood was at a 19-year-old woman's house in Jacksonville on Monday afternoon when an intruder, allegedly the teen's ex-boyfriend, entered the home, reported the Florida Times-Union.

According to the police report, Osgood and Mackenzie Rae Putnal were in the second floor of a residence watching TV when a man with a plastic bag on his face pointed a gun at them, the paper reported. The gunman proceeded to pull the teen around by her hair, as well as striking her with the gun and his fists; he also pistol-whipped Osgood, the report stated. The suspect also struck the woman's dog repeatedly, according to the police report.

Eventually, Putnal managed to escape by jumping off a balcony; Osgood, too, jumped to the first floor to safety, reported the Florida Times-Union. He ran to a neighbor's house and called 911, according to the police report. While Osgood was out of the house, Putnal, who had armed herself, exchanged gunfire with the intruder, the paper reported. Neither was injured.

Police have charged Julian Armond Bartletto, 20, with aggravated battery, false imprisonment, armed robbery, burglary and violation of an injunction, the paper reported. Putnal had filed a restraining order against Bartletto prior to Monday's incident, according to the Florida Times-Union.

Osgood's coach, Jack Del Rio, told the paper his Pro Bowler was "fine."
