A Brampton father fought off a car burglar who tried to steal his SUV with a baby inside from his driveway, and the entire incident was captured on video camera.
According to Peel Regional Police, shortly before 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, a father loaded his 10-month-old baby into an SUV parked in his driveway before returning home to get his second child and bring them to the car.
Surveillance video footage shared online shows a man dressed in black and wearing a mask emerge from a parked black automobile on the street and approach the vehicle’s driver’s side door.
When the father emerged with his second child, he quickly notices the strange man in the driver’s seat of his SUV, and while holding his older child in his arms, opens the passenger’s side door of vehicle to confront him.
The suspect throws the car in reverse, sending it rolling down the driveway with the father – and his child – in the path of the open passenger’s side door.
The father then circles over to the driver’s side door and the suspect flees back to the waiting getaway vehicle.
Still engaged, the SUV slowly crawls up the driveway and strikes the home’s garage door.
Police say nobody was injured in the incident and they are working to identify the suspect.
