LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a would-be burglar got more than he bargained for when a person inside the home tackled him and held him until police arrived.

According to the arrest report, it happened early Thursday in the 1500 block of Hepburn Avenue in the Highlands neighborhood. Police say they were called to the home on a report of a break-in in progress. When they arrived, they found the suspect, 24-year-old Evan Habeeb, lying in the grass with a cut on his hand.

A witness told police he was inside the home around 12:15 a.m. when he heard a noise from the kitchen downstairs.

That's when he says he saw Habeeb in the kitchen going through his wife's purse. He says he yelled at the suspect, who grabbed a bag containing his wife's breast pump and took off out the back door. The witness chased Habeeb, tackled him and held him until police arrived. 

Habeeb was taken to the hospital to treat the cut on his hand before being booked into Metro Corrections on one charge of second degree burglary. He was being held at Metro Corrections without bond.
