You've caught a burglar breaking into your home, but you're really late for work. What do you do?

One Oklahoma man decided the answer wasn't scaring the thief off or waiting for the police. Instead he pinned the thief to the ground, tied him up and left him in the front garden for the police.

News 9 reported that the man from Tulsa took action after he heard the sound of glass shattering coming from his daughter's bedroom.

After hearing more noises from the garage, he decided to wait outside the front door and grab the thief when he emerged.

The man's pregnant wife told News 9 "he bum-rushed him" and then hogtied him.

"[My husband] was like 'OK, what's done is done.' He's like a super-hero," said Denay Houston.

"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.'"
