track down: to search for and find someone or something
Marjorie Perkins, 87, woke up to a shocking sight. A young man without his shirt and pants stood near her bed, telling her he wanted to cut her. Marjorie said, “If he’s going to cut, then I’m going to kick.” She fought back using a chair to keep him at bay. During their struggle, the man hit her multiple times in the face.
But then the teenage intruder stopped fighting and said he was hungry. Marjorie fed the young man crackers and peanut butter before he left. The police quickly tracked down the hungry criminal and arrested him.
