TAMPA, Fla. -- Two Tampa solid waste workers managed to foil a burglars plans.
Michael Gordon and Michael Kowalke says a young girl came up to them and said her house was being robbed and called for help.
Both men ran to the house and caught the burglar red handed.
The burglar made a run for it, but was caught by the men. The men tackled him and held until cops arrived.
"I applied more pressure on my knee on his chest and he kept hollering let me go let me go I can't breathe and I told him you aren't going anywhere you are going to jail," Gordon said.
"Knowing that you actually helped someone it makes you have a good feeling," Kowalke said.
The burglar was armed with a knife but he did not get a chance to use it during the confrontation.
