A Robertson County woman had quite the scare when she heard someone trying to steal her vehicle from her garage.

The suspect, Rashawn Williams, who is homeless, was ultimately arrested, but only after the victim stayed on the phone with dispatchers until police arrived.

It happened around 6:20 Wednesday morning. Police said the victim heard beating on her garage door and shattering glass.

That's when she grabbed her hand gun from her night stand, locked herself in the bathroom and called 911.

"I'm locked in my bathroom, but I do have a weapon," she told the dispatcher.

"Oh dear God pleas hurry, hurry, hurry," she whispered to the dispatcher. "Oh my God I don't know what to do, I have a gun, do I shoot him or not?" she asked the dispatcher. "No ma'am just hang tight we have units en route so just stay on the phone with me ok?," the dispatcher responded.

Three Robertson County deputies responded and approached the garage and broken glass door at the same time, Williams was coming out of the house through the garage.

"I hear the cops," she told the dispatcher.

Williams was taken into custody at gunpoint.

They then found the homeowner, making sure she was okay. "I'm back here in the bathroom. I'm putting my weapon away. I'm right here sir, right here," she told the deputies.

Williams was charged with aggravated burglary, theft of property, over $10,000, theft of property, over $1,000, theft of property, over $500 and vandalism.

He told deputies he was trying to take people's vehicles and that he was being chased and that someone was trying to kill him.

Deputies said Williams was able to get into the victim's truck and took a flash light, food and keys from the home.

His bond is set at $40,500.
