The men wrestle for a few minutes on the ground before the homeowner finally holds him down for long enough to grab the man’s gun and run into the street. Police say the suspect then fled the scene.

A spokesperson for the Taraval Police Department said the victim told them he was taking his garbage cans inside when the suspect walked into his garage holding a handgun.

Police posted the video on YouTube and are appealing to the public for help identifying him. He has been described as a black male aged between 23 and 27 years and approximately 5'10" tall.
