Reached by phone, Hixon’s mother told WCMH that her daughter had good intentions.
An Ohio woman said she was left horrified after discovering another woman in her home preparing to give her child a bath, according to a report.
Areica Hill told news station WCMH-TV, “I have never heard of anything like this,” after waking up to the sound of a dog barking and discovering the alleged intruder in her home, in Columbus, Ohio.
“I get up and I walk to my door and the way my house is set up, I can look down the hall,” Hill said. “I see a white female lady, bent over the tub, with my 2-year-old in the tub.”
Hill and the home intruder, identified as Elizabeth Hixon, 22, briefly scuffled and Hill’s boyfriend held Hixon in place until police arrived.
Hixon was arrested and charged with burglary and has posted bond.
