Intruder caught giving 2-year-old child a bath

COLUMBUS, Ohio – An Ohio mom says she was horrified to discover an intruder inside her home preparing a bath for her 2-year-old son, according to a report.

Areica Hill said she woke up to find another woman in her Columbus home on Wednesday trying to give her son a bath, news station WCMH-TV reported.

“I’ve never heard of anything like this,” Hill said.

Hill told the news agency that she awoke Wednesday morning to the sound of a dog barking in her home.

“I get up and I walk to my door and the way my house is set up, I can look down the hall,” Hill explained. “I see a white female lady, bent over the tub, with my 2-year-old in the tub.”

Hill said she got the woman away from her child, then her boyfriend restrained the stranger until authorities arrived.

The intruder, who was identified as Elizabeth Hixon, 22, has been arrested and charged with burglary, WCMH-TV reported. Hixon was released after posting bond in Franklin County Municipal Court, according to the report.
