An unlikely hero tells how he rescued a woman from a house of horrors in southern Indiana.

Police say Joelle Lockwood was abducted off the street two months ago in Evansville.

Suspects Kendra Tooley and Ricky House are accused of keeping Lockwood half-naked in a cage.

Thursday Tooley's ex, Ronald Higgs, visited their trailer, found the victim and came to her aid.

The 61-year-old says he wrestled a gun from the man and saved Lockwood from a beating.

Higgs says the victim was raped repeatedly. He believes the suspects wanted her to have a baby for them and planned to kill her afterward.
