This undated photo provided by the Orange County, N.C., Sheriff's Office shows Jataveon Dashawn Hall. In similar situations, hospital staff will often alert law enforcement personnel when a suspect patient is discharged, but they remain the legal responsibility of law enforcement.

An 11-year-old Little League star thwarted a North Carolina home invasion when he came out swinging a machete, striking one intruder in the head, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

Hall is expected to be charged with breaking and entering, second-degree kidnapping, interfering with emergency communications and assault on a child under 12 after being released from the hospital, police said.

Authorities say he was among intruders who broke into the home Friday but was chased off when the boy drew blood with the machete.

The boy escaped the closet and grabbed a machete, using it to strike the man in the head. Authorities didn't say where the machete had been stored.

Two other suspected accomplices also face possible charges for the incident in the small city in rural North Carolina. As the boy looked outside and saw a man standing near a vehicle, another man broke a window on the other side of the home and came in, according to a news release.

It wasn't clear if Hall had an attorney; no phone listing for him could be found.

It was what happened after Hall sought treatment that raised questions about how he was guarded.

While a woman knocked on the front door of his home, a man was breaking in through a window, the sheriff's office said.

Hall, who is from Monroe, south of Charlotte, was connected to the case when he arrived at a hospital with a head injury, the sheriff's office said.

Hall was transferred to UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill because of the severity of his wound. Surveillance video showed him leaving. A nurse noted in his chart shortly thereafter that he had left.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff's office at 919-245-2900 or 911. The reason for the delay wasn't clear.

"We've been doing this since I was in the Sheriff's Office", Sykes said. "However, it has become clear to me that another statement was necessary to defend the actions of my deputies and investigators and to place this matter in the correct context". The hospital released a statement to CNN detailing that an officer was not placed on guard in Hall's hospital room.

County law enforcement and US Marshals were looking for him.
