A man suspected of burglarizing a City Heights home on Monday likely regretted his decision after a resident — who happens to also be an experienced mixed martial arts fighter — spotted him and took him down.
A video of the incident, recorded by a neighbor, had been viewed more than 86,000 times as of 7 p.m. Monday.
Sergio Hernandez and his father had just returned from a trip to a mechanic when he spotted a stranger in the backyard of their 40th Street property.
“It was shocking,” Hernandez said. “He was just standing there, inside my yard.”
