A SAVIOR DOG
A resident of Houston feels grateful after criminals seemingly chased him till his home from bank and assaulted him, rather his neighbor's dog frightened them away. Upon hoping to cash his paycheck at Friday evening at Houston, Hernandez informed that he has all his weekly earnings. He held $210 in the front pocket of his jacket and $690 in his back pocket which had the wallet. Hernandez claims he didn't know what he perceived to be a black car chasing him from bank while he was heading home. The car pulled up as Hernandez opened the door for the driveway of his house. Hernandez decided to check his postbox, and while he was there he claims he was confronted with a man wearing a red hood.
The guy could not get to Hernandez's pockets, but tore the jacket when he went, snatching $200 from his pocket shirts. The monitoring video also shows that the robber flees to the overheating car, even though the dog chased him wanting to attack and bite the thief. He believes the robber "would have torn him down" as he was laying in the field had it not been for Ace to save his life, Hernandez stated.
He claimed that he knew that the assault could have been far worse. He expects that somebody will identify the vehicle or the suspect and report them to the cops after revealing his experience. He intends also to continue and insure that no one else is followed or thrown away from the house or the bank.
