Hayley Gibbs said: "He told me to give him a beating and let him go - I told him he was going to get a beating but that he wasnt going anywhere"
A brave mum grabbed hold of a burglar then dragged him into the street and restrained him until police arrived.
Hayley Gibbs says she acted on pure instinct when she saw the stranger peeking through her kitchen window after being burgled years earlier.
Fuelled by adrenaline, the 28-year-old confronted the man, later identified as 23-year-old Anthony Joseph Gunn, before grabbing hold of him to stop him escaping.
Resisting his swinging fists, the 5ft 9in mum-of-two wrestled him to the front of the house and shouted for a neighbour to call the cops while she clung on for what felt like a life-time.
Hayley, of Middlesbrough, Teesside, had been burgled years before and was determined that it wasnt going to happen again.
She said: I just knew I wasnt going to let him escape. He told me to give him a beating and let him go.
I told him he was going to get a beating but that he wasnt going anywhere.
I had never seen him before in my life and knew exactly what he was up to.
I grabbed him by the scuff of the neck and tried to drag him onto the street at the front.

MAMA GRIZ AMERICANA!!
And these people think they are “civilized” because they force their populations to survive using the law of the jungle, where the biggest and strongest win.
They celebrate when the innocent underdog wins, but we know that is the norm. Rarely is a woman going to physically stop a male attacker, who gets to choose the time, place, and victim.
Firearms are for civilized peoples.
The Japanese criminal justice system bears more heavily on a suspect than any other system in an industrial democratic nation. One American found this out when he was arrested in Okinawa for possessing marijuana: he was interrogated for days without an attorney, and signed a confession written in Japanese that he could not read. He met his lawyer for the first time at his trial, which took 30 minutes.
Unlike in the United States, where the Miranda rule limits coercive police interrogation techniques, Japanese police and prosecutors may detain a suspect indefinitely until he confesses. (Technically, detentions are only allowed for three days, followed by ten day extensions approved by a judge, but defense attorneys rarely oppose the extension request, for fear of offending the prosecutor.) Bail is denied if it would interfere with interrogation.
Even after interrogation is completed, pretrial detention may continue on a variety of pretexts, such as preventing the defendant from destroying evidence. Criminal defense lawyers are the only people allowed to visit a detained suspect, and those meetings are strictly limited.
Partly as a result of these coercive practices, and partly as a result of the Japanese sense of shame, the confession rate is 95%.
For those few defendants who dare to go to trial, there is no jury. Since judges almost always defer to the prosecutors' judgment, the trial conviction rate for violent crime is 99.5%. Of those convicted, 98% receive jail time.
