The hammer-wielding Tacoma man bloodied his feet chasing the burglar several blocks, but he never gave up.

The 46-year-old burglar finally did when police came to the man’s aid.

It was about 2 a.m. when the man awoke and heard someone rummaging through his detached garage in the 4300 block of Tacoma Avenue. He grabbed a hammer on his way to investigate.

When he spotted a burglar prowling his pickup truck, he gave chase. His girlfriend called 911.

Police arrived and arrested the man on suspicion of burglary after he stopped running from the homeowner.
