Man punches out burglary suspect

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - What do you do when you find a burglar trying to climb in your window? Well, a Harrison County man yanked him out and punched him in the face.

Sheriff's investigators arrested 30-year-old Samuel T. Hayes of Gulfport Wednesday on a felony charge of Burglary of an occupied dwelling.

Investigators say a homeowner on East Adams Road in Saucier heard a window breaking and went outside to find one man in his yard and Hayes climbing in a window. The man in the yard ran off. The homeowner pulled Hayes out of the window and hit him. Hayes fled in a gray SUV, but not before the victim got the license number.

Samuel Hayes is being held at the Harrison County jail. Investigators are still looking for the second man who was in the yard.
