A Baton Rouge homeowner held a man he caught trying to break into his house at gunpoint and broadcast the incident on Facebook live until the police arrived Wednesday, according to a WBRZ report.

Caesar Ray said he was working on his home that flooded when he heard his daughter's car alarm go off. Around the same time, a neighbor called to let Ray know she saw a man mulling around their house. 

Ray, who told WBRZ he's worked in law enforcement, ran into the man as he was breaking the screen off of a window in front of the house, identified as 18-year-old Roberto Garcia, held him at gunpoint, handcuffed him and made sure he stayed put until police arrived. 

"You just tried to break into the wrong damn house," Ray is heard saying on the video. "You stay where you're located right there. Don't move." 

Garcia did not answer Ray and was eventually arrested and taken to the East Baton Rouge Parish jail on auto burglary and attempted burglary of an inhabited dwelling charges.
