Man Sits on Burglar Until Police Arrive

The Associated Press

TWO RIVERS, Wis. – A man who stumbled upon a burglar near his house did the only thing he could do until police arrived , he sat on the thief.

Jeffrey Stephens and his wife Patricia recently awoke after their dog started barking. Patricia said when she went to investigate, she found a 20-year-old man going through the back seat of a neighbor’s van.

Jeffrey Stephens confronted the younger man, who claimed the van was his friend’s, and the two scuffled. The younger man eventually lost his jacket, shirt, shoe and sock in the tumble.

And then, Jeffrey Stephens, who weighs 200 pounds, sat on the would-be burglar.

Patricia Stephens called authorities and said she looked out her window and described exactly what she saw, that her husband was sitting on someone.

The 20-year-old was arrested and is expected to be in court this week.

Jeffrey Stephens sustained minor injuries in the scuffle.
