A homeowner says his roommate came home Tuesday night in Wall Township to find two intruders in their living room.
Two men were first seen on security video walking around 6:30 p.m. on Tom’s front porch. Tom says he received a Ring notification and turned on the live video when he saw the two men prowling outside. Inside, he said he saw his roommate Anthony and two neighbors.
Moments later, Tom says Anthony was seen chasing one of the suspects out the door following a physical confrontation in the living room as neighbors Melanie and Kevin yell at the two men to get out.
“They are heroes. Anthony is a hero. Melanie is a hero. Kevin is a hero,” Tom says. “They chased these people. Anthony, my roommate, going in there not sure what he was going to find and chasing them away. Heroic. You never know what you're going to do or feel in those situations. They kind of just swung into action.”
