Danielson says he and his wife arrived at their home to see Sosa and another man running out of the house.

Danielson chased the men down, caught up with Sosa and detained him until police arrived.

“He was just like, ‘I’m sorry,'” Danielson said.

“He wasn’t in very good shape so it didn’t take much. I took him down — I put him in a rear-naked choke but not to — I didn’t want to hurt him, I just wanted to make sure he was subdued,” Danielson said.

The second suspect was not located.

Sosa was booked into Maricopa County jail and charged with burglary.
