"I grabbed him by the T-shirt and held my fist to his face. I was ready to kick his butt," Carole Penzabene said after she thwarted the attempted robbery.
Police responded to a Madison Heights home in the area of 12 Mile and Dequindre roads around 11 p.m. Wednesday to find a 20-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman pinned to the ground by Penzabene.
The couple was arrested and is waiting to be arraigned Friday on breaking and entering and home invasion charges.
