The Gold Coast man didn’t hesitate when he left the house completely naked to find a teenager trying to steal a car.
David Rutherford woke up to the sound of his car starting after midnight on Wednesday and ran out of bed to find a teenager holding his key.
Rutherford caught a 15-year-old kid who jumped back in front of a car from a gutter without thinking about getting dressed.
“When I heard the car start, I started running, and he hit a gutter here and then stalled it,” he told Seven News.
“I didn’t have time to get dressed because I was sleeping naked.”
Rutherford managed to wrestle with a teenager out of the car and used his Jiu-Jitsu skills to keep him from escaping.
The footage shows a teenager sitting on the ground outside Mr. Rutherford’s house while an older man is looking for a pocket.
“Let me go, I’ll do whatever I promise,” Teen says in a CCTV video.
Rutherford slipped through his teenage pocket to find a “mountain” of car keys and licenses.
Rutherford realized he was still naked, and when he made the decision, he took the boy into his house and put on his pants.
“Let’s put on your pants while you’re deciding,” he can hear in the footage.
Rutherford sent a teenager after a tough lecture because he wanted to go back to sleep.
“I’m going to let him go. I don’t know what people think about it, but I wanted to go back to sleep,” he said.
“I think he learned the lesson … I was tired.”
