EVANS, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado man accused in a weekend break-in was nabbed when police say he ran into some unexpected guests — his own kids.
Police say 33-year-old Raul Gaucin-Valenzuela (gow-SEEN' val-ehn-ZWAY'-lah) accompanied a friend Saturday to break into the home of a friend's ex-wife and beat up her new boyfriend.
But the plan was foiled when the men ran into Gaucin-Valenzuela's children, ages 8 and 11.
Police say he didn't realize the woman who lived there was baby-sitting his children. The kids recognized their dad, even though his face was covered by a bandanna.
No one was hurt in the break-in. Gaucin-Valenzuela was jailed on suspicion of second-degree burglary and other charges. The friend hasn't been located.
