Neighbors fight back against some would-be burglars, one of whom winds up in a bayou.
Houston police say the overnight incident began about 12:30 when two suspects were caught trying to break into a pickup truck on Westmont near Candlewick.
The truck’s owner and a group of neighbors tried to stop them but one broke away and ran from the scene. The other suspect ran behind a house and hopped a fence, tumbling down a steep embankment into a bayou.
Rescue personnel from the Houston fire department pulled the suspect to safety and took him to the hospital with minor injuries.
That suspect is reportedly fifteen years old. He’s being charged with burglary of a motor vehicle. A minivan the two suspects were in was found to be stolen, as was a bicycle inside it.
