Action video shows a Texas mom body-slamming a suspected peeping tom accused of looking into her teenage daughter’s bedroom window, according to reports. This mom is not playing around when it comes to her children.
Pervert gets body slammed for trespassing
Phyllis Pena told Lake Jackson Police that she had returned home from the store around 7 a.m. on January 31 when she spotted Zane Hawkins, 19, in her yard, reportedly staring into the window of her 15-year-old daughter.
Hawkins fled when he saw Pena, Daily Mail reported. He ran away as the mom called police.
The suspect was found in the neighborhood by police, but he tried again to run away again. However, he apparently made the mistake of running back toward Pena. Check out this awesome police dash cam video of the mom, Phyllis Pena, effortlessly taking down the creepy pervert for police.

Brave Texas mom tackles peeping Tom
Wow. Give her a badge and a gun and she could be on the force! The mother told KPRC that her “first instinct was just to make sure he didn’t go any further.”
“My kids are my life and just making sure I protect them,” Pena added.
And she did just that by tackling Hawkins like a pro. In dashcam video, Pena is seen preparing to grab Hawkins as he tries to run by her.
Her daughter then helped hold down the suspect until police arrived. Hopefully, the humiliated perpetrator won’t make this same mistake again.
Hawkins is facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, evading arrest and resisting arrest, Lake Jackson Police said.
“It’s not very often that we have somebody that actually steps in, puts themself in harm’s way to assist in apprehending somebody,” Sgt. Roy Welch said.
“The cop fist-bumped me and he was like, ‘Hey, so I heard the Texans are looking for a new linebacker,’” Pena said.
