first at 4 - one family's breathing a sigh of relief after a father beats an invader with a bat. good afternoon. i'm debbie cobb. it happened just after three this morning on 'stoney drive' in redding. that's when a woman found a strange man in her home. she ran upstairs and got her son- in law.. robert bass.. investigators say 'bass' grabbed a bat and chased the man outside. they say bass spotted him trying to break into a neighbors r-v. when bass confronted him - deputies say the suspect grabbed a pick axe. that's when bass beat the suspect with the bat and held him until deputies got there. deputies identified the suspect as derrick jones and charged him with first degree burglary. its kind of surreal feeling. i dont want it to happen again. have you ever had your car broken into? i have and i felt really violated and i felt liek there was nothing i could do. this time i felt really violated and it felt like there was something i had to do. because the lives of my family were depending on me bass says his mother-in-law, wife and twin 8- year-old boys were inside of the home at the time of the attack. the family is now looking into getting security cameras to feel more at ease. jones is now behind bars
