A St. Paul mother and daughter pinned a burglar to the floor of their home and called police, while keeping a pink-stocked gun pointed at their intruder until officers arrived.
“What the hell are you doing in my home?” said 56-year-old Rebecca Larson, when she found suspected burglar Marty Childs inside of her Fremont Street house on the afternoon of Sept. 16.
Larson had been outside washing her car at the time of the burglary, leaving the back door unlocked as her 34-year-old daughter Melissa Hickman slept upstairs. She walked inside to grab something when she saw Childs standing over her purse.
