CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Hansford woman detained an alleged burglar on Tuesday while she waited on police to arrive.
Just before 3 p.m., Sarah Kessick called 911 about the alleged burglary on Kanawha Street in Hansford.
Kessick told police she came home and saw Travis Lee Hudnall walking between her house and a fence while carrying her chainsaw, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court. She told police she got out of her vehicle and yelled at him to stop.
Hudnall then ran behind the house and over a river bank, according to the complaint. Kessick told police she chased him and was wrestling him when he told her had a gun on him.
