SAN ANTONIO -- A man was threatened with a shotgun after he caught some robbers stealing items from his neighbor's house Tuesday.
A neighbor saw two men carrying items out of a home in the 5000 block of Village Trail, near Rittiman Road and Interstate 35, around 11:45 a.m. The woman told her husband, who then went outside and confronted the pair. The men grabbed a shotgun they had taken from the home, pointed it at the neighbor, and then ran to a waiting car being driven by a woman.
The robbers ended up leaving behind some of the items taken from the home. The homeowner told News 4 WOAI he is very thankful his neighbors were looking out for him.
Police said the men are Hispanic and were wearing black hooded sweatshirts. The woman, who is also Hispanic, is described as heavyset. Investigators believe the trio may be tied to another burglary in the area.
