A Texas mom tackled a man she saw peering in her 15-year-old’s bedroom window, helping cops make the collar, police said this week.
The mom’s defensive moves were so good, local cops joked that the Houston Texans could use her as a linebacker.
“My kids are my life and [I was] just making sure I protect them,” mom Phyllis Pena told Click2Houston.com of the takedown, which was captured on the dash cam of arriving officers.
Pena had been returning from the store to her Lake Jackson home at 7 a.m. on Jan. 31 when she found a man in her yard, peeking into her girl’s bedroom window.
The girl was not in the bedroom at the time; still, Pena’s maternal instincts kicked in hard.
