“I was scared a little bit, but I told myself just go with it,” said Alonso.
In the surveillance footage, Jose is seen jumping out of the vehicle, with only one shoe on, running after the suspect.
“I ran as fast as I can, so I reached in and grabbed my mom’s black wallet with her credit cards,” said Alonso.
The suspect was only able to get away with the purse and keys since Jose managed to hold on to his mother’s wallet. The suspect took off in a red Ford Expedition with a woman who was inside the SUV.
Jose was left in shock. But when asked why he made such a bold move to get his mother’s purse back, he had one thing to say.
“My sister’s party was coming up and I wanted her to have her party, and I wanted my mom to get all of her stuff back,” said Alonso.
Now that’s a hero in our book. Congratulations, Alonso, for not cowering to fear, for standing up to common thieves, and for being a great brother and son to your family!
