A husband and his wife from Rocky Hill, Connecticut, are being praised as heroes after courageously defending against a group of four potential thieves who attempted to steal his parked car in their own driveway.
To aid the investigation, a home security footage capturing the astonishing moment was shared.
The police released a home security video that depicted the precise moment of the attempted carjacking.
In the footage, it becomes evident that the car was unlocked, and an individual dressed entirely in black approached the driver’s seat with the intention of stealing the car.
Unbeknownst to the would-be thief, the owner was mere steps away.
Reacting swiftly, the owner perceived the unfolding situation and responded with such speed that the thief was taken by surprise.
The man forcibly removed the carjacker from the vehicle and swiftly subdued him through physical engagement.
Unbeknownst to the man, the thief was not acting alone.
In a matter of moments, three additional men rushed onto the scene, joining forces with the thief in an attempt to overpower the homeowner.
The group engaged in a physical altercation with the man, landing punches to his face while endeavoring to wrest control of the vehicle.
As the confrontation unfolded, two of the assailants made a dash for their getaway car, a black Mercedes.
Meanwhile, the other two assailants were still grappling with the homeowner when his wife’s voice resonated loudly, announcing that she had alerted the police.
Upon hearing the wife’s voice informing them that the police were on their way, the carjacker swiftly fled the scene.
Thanks to the wife’s intervention, the perpetrators were deterred and fled, leaving her husband’s car in their driveway.
Although her husband sustained minor injuries, the car remained unharmed and the thieves were unsuccessful in their carjacking endeavor.
