She heard breaking glass and went to investigate. She saw a man trying to climb through the window. She grabbed the axe and ran towards him. The man fled, jumping from a first-floor window.

The police were called, but as the man had left – they also went shortly after.

She then later spotted the man hiding in a bush, waiting for the fuss to blow over. She called the police again who then arrested him.

The 32 year old has been charged.
