Video captured in Oakland, California, showed the moment an Asian couple’s son chased four alleged robbers away from his parents with a machete.
The son, who asked not to be identified, told ABC 7’s Dion Lim the men approached his parents as they sat on their front porch following a trip to the grocery store on March 29 at about 4:30 p.m.
A man wearing a black hoodie and red mask appeared to grab at the woman’s throat when another person came up and did the same, according to the video:
