    Tulsa Homeowner Hogties Attempted Burglar

    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.
    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.
    "I was like, 'That's my man!' I was really proud of him," Houston said.
    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.
    The video is great. What a guy. Catch a burglar, tie him up and then head off to work even before the police arrive.

    Lucky for the crook, the homeowner 'only' hogtied him.

    I'll say. A daughter and a 9-month pregnant wife in the house? And in Oklahoma? The crook is lucky he isn't dead.

    I love the wife's comment
    "I was like, 'That's my man!' I was really proud of him,"
    That guy is a true protector and provider all in the same day.

    I must admit that never heard the expression "Bum rush him". I understand he tackled him. Bum rush must be a regional thing.

    Used to hear it years ago from older men, not quite sure of the origins. Maybe "Rush him and knock him on his bum", or something. Or from bouncers/doormen rushing a bum out of a nice hotel/bar/restaurant/etc.

    Especially since he came in through the daughter's room. I definitely would have shot him. So would most people.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Could be, we use it here in La. at least in my area of the state. Usually here though it means every able person rushes the offender and incapacitates him.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I would use the two foot rule in the front of the house, the burglar survives within two feet and will be allowed to retreat, coming through any family member's room is an automatic shot dead in the window sill. That's provided I see no other aggression from that burgler, if I see the person so much as reach in an area where a weapon may be concealed or if that person has weapon in hand I'm shooting.
