A man in Tulsa, Oklahoma heard a home intruder attempting to break in while he was getting his kids ready for school, so he waited for him, ambushed him, and hogtied him until cops could arrive on the scene.

The one problem? The man, only known as Willie, had to get to work, so he left 31-year-old Robert Cole hogtied on his front lawn for the cops to apprehend upon their arrival.

Willie expertly tied the man up after his wife heard a noise in their garage at approximately 6 a.m.

“I said, ‘A raccoon didn’t do that,’” said Willie’s wife, Denay Houston. “And he was just like, ‘Oh God.’”

She says her husband did not hesitate to tackle the would-be intruder.

“And then he waited for him to come out and then he bum-rushed him,” she said.

Willie left Cole, who was high on drugs, tied up in the front lawn with his 9-months-pregnant wife watching over him until police arrived.

“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.

“He’s like a superhero,” she said.

According to Houston, Willie got his expertise in tying ropes from working with horses.

Cole, who has a criminal history, was arrested on first-degree robbery charges.

He is being held in Tulsa County jail on $32,079 bail.
