That’s My Property!

Natalie Williamson says Kenneth Williams wanted her to return his backpack to him at her front door. He’d thrown it through her window, according to her daughter, while trying to break into her Oklahoma City, Okla., home. While he was hanging from the window, Williamson says, “I got a crutch, and I started slamming him in the face with it. And he wouldn’t get down. So I picked up a vacuum out of the hallway and started slamming him in the face with the vacuum. He still wouldn’t get down, so I proceeded to punch him with my fist, and he jumped down.” That’s when he asked her to come to the door. She did — wielding a knife. She and her neighbors chased and caught him, and then the police arrested him. He’s charged with burglary. (AC/KOKH Oklahoma City) ...He may have wanted to clean her out, but he was the one who got vacuumed.
