Surveillance video shows the man attempting to escape by running toward his car. That's when Karlee Meyer ran up to him armed with a large rock taped to stick.

“He jumped into his car right here and I jumped right in there with him,” she said. “We wrestled till I got his keys.”

The man had tried to break into Meyer’s house three times in one week. He has since been taken into police custody.
