An armed female houseguest in Ohio chased three alleged intruders out of the home in which she was staying.

The April 16 incident occurred in Eastlake, Ohio, around 8:30 a.m.

According to, police say the houseguest was sleeping when “She heard banging on the front and back doors,” followed by the sounds of “male voices.” The houseguest went toward the sound and “confronted the trio with a pistol.” The three suspects immediately fled the home, jumped in a car, and drove away.

The houseguest was able to get the license number of the car and relayed it to police. Shortly thereafter the car was spotted and 19-year-old Mark Kozlevchar and 20-year-old Dylan Ludvik were arrested and charged with burglary. A juvenile was also taken into custody.
