A Riverside couple awakened by a notification from their security camera stormed out of bed and chased off a man who was apparently trying to break into their truck and other vehicles on a rainy Christmas night.
Video from the LaFortune’s security camera and a neighbor’s show a man in a cap and jacket with a backpack walking up to several vehicles parked in the residential cul-de-sac. Shortly after the shadowy figure appeared in the LaFortune’s driveway, Kevin LaFortune — barefoot and wearing only his underpants — can be seen rampaging out the door in video from the home’s sideyard followed by a dog.
After a brief scuffle, Kelly LaFortune joined her husband and the man ran off.
“We felt like it was almost kind of a like street justice,” said Kelly LaFortune. “Maybe he’ll think twice next time.”
No arrests were reported Friday.
