Rik Melartin responded to screams coming from his 89-year-old neighbor’s home by grabbing his firearm and chasing down the 20-year old suspect.

“I look around, I see this man running all across the lawn,” Melartin told KHOU. “I hear the screams going, ‘Please stop him, please stop him!’ And I see him approach Rudy’s house and I say, ‘OK, that’s not going to happen. Not on my watch’.”
