Connecticut homeowner thwarts attempted armed robbery during fake package delivery by shoving suspect


A Ring video surveillance system captured the terrifying moment an armed robber, posing as a delivery man, attempted to rob a Connecticut homeowner. The homeowner reacted in lightening speed, quickly defending himself by shoving the would-be thief.

East Haven Police in Connecticut said the attempted home invasion occurred on Friday, April 14 in a quiet neighborhood. 

Officers said just before 10:00 a.m., 37-year-old Xavier Otero came up to a home dressed as a deliveryman, wearing a fluorescent orange safety vest and holding a manila envelope in his hand. In the background of the Ring surveillance video, a silver Dodge Ram Pickup truck was seen waiting by the unsuspecting family’s home
