A man finds a would-be robber breaking through the window in his young daughter’s room. Hogties him up, leaves him in the front yard for police, and then goes to work. I am impressed at his work ethic in addition to his protecting his family.
A burglary suspect got quite the surprise Wednesday morning. Police say Robert Cole tried to break into a home, but ended up hogtied in the front yard.
The picture is making its way around the Internet. Police say Cole was bum-rushed and hogtied by the homeowner, after he tried to break in to the house in the 2600 block of East 54th Street North.
"He’s like a superhero," said Denay Houston.
She said she is awfully proud of her husband and how this would-be burglar ended up.
"I got adrenaline running through me like nobody’s business right now, and being nine months pregnant doesn’t help any," Houston said.
It all started when the Houstons heard the glass break outside their daughter’s bedroom around 6 o’clock Wednesday morning.
"That folding chair was in her bedroom, shattered glass all over the place, and I said, ‘A raccoon didn’t do that.’ And he was just like, ‘Oh God,’" Houston said.
They heard rustling inside the garage and Houston’s husband went to the front door.
"And then he waited for him to come out and then he bum-rushed him," she said.
He did more than just bum-rush him–her husband tied Robert Cole’s hands and feet behind his back; hogtied him.
