    Woman Stops Alleged Burglar With Scraper

    WTKR NewsChannel 3: News, Weather and Traffic in Hampton Roads and North Carolina | Woman Stops Alleged Burglar With Scraper

    Cedar Rapids police say a woman chased down a burglar, bagged him with an ice scrapper and then made him pick up the stolen loot he dropped when he fled.

    Police were called to Derdre Rodriguez's home on Monday where they found her holding 16-year-old Jake Merfeld at bay with the ice scraper.

    She told officers that when she came home, she heard someone jump out of a back window. She saw the teen running across the yard, carrying jewelry, cell phones and a video game.

    Rodriguez chased the suspect, who started dropping the items. When she caught him, she hit him on top of the head with the ice scrapper and he surrendered. Rodriguez made Merfeld pick up all the property he dropped when he tried to escape.

    Merfeld, who was treated for a cut on his head, faces a second-degree burglary charge.

    LOL, good for her. Though she took a big risk.

    I'm sure he'll tell all his friends in juvenile detention how brave he was and how hard he fought back before being overcome by superior numbers and loss of blood.

    Good stuff! It is not the weapon that matters! It is the person behind the weapon.
