Riverside police say a female suspect who was the passenger in a stolen car ran and hid in a literal doghouse to evade them.
Surveillance video captured the weird scene as Sarah Stephens says she heard noises coming from her backyard.
"I ran and woke up my husband and called the cops."
Stephens says she saw the woman in her yard and saw the moment she crawled into the doghouse.
Her husband grabbed a bat and she a shotgun, ready to protect their child.
"If she would have come into our house, she would have had a shotgun blast through body."
Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback says when they arrived, the woman surrendered and was arrested for a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.
