Man hogties burglar and leaves him on the lawn for police
TULSA, Oklahoma -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.
It all started when the Houstons heard the glass break outside their daughter's bedroom around 6 o'clock Wednesday morning."
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.
As soon as Cole was tied up, Houston said her husband turned to her and said he had to leave, had to go work. That's why we couldn't talk to him today.
So, he called police and let his wife watch over his catch.
"That's just the type of person he is, you know? That's just the type of person he is. Business is business. 'I got to take care of business, he's safe, the police are coming, I got to go,'" Houston said.
