Man fights back after robber steals his pants

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A robbery victim fought back after burglars took more than his money.

The victim was held up in his driveway in the 1600 block of Robin Hood Lane, not far from Getwell Road and I-240.

Security camera footage shows the man pulling his truck into his driveway. Seconds later, a man is seen sprinting behind him.

"It was a guy, knocking on the window with a gun," said the victim, who was robbed of his wallet and phone. "He takes me to the garage and he put me on the floor and he takes my pants."

Yes, his pants were stolen, too.

In the video, you can see the man running away down the driveway with the man's pants in his hands.

But, this victim wasn't going to let it go. He got up and decided to follow the fleeing suspect.

Blocks later, the man used his truck to ram the suspect and push him off the road, crashing into a fence.

"Just put gas on my truck and hit him from the side," he said. "I don't say it's right what I do, but in that moment, in my mind, it was like follow them and call the cops. But, when I was on my way, I remember they took my phone so I said, 'What am I going to do now?'"

The suspect quickly ran away, but left behind a lot of evidence.

"They find IDs, cell phones, a lot of evidence so they say they're going to catch them," the man said.

This victim feels lucky things did not go a different direction.

"When you got a gun on your head, yeah, of course, you feel like you get another chance," he added.
