(KWTV-TV) 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.
