Phyllis Pena went viral when she was caught on a police dash camera tackling a suspected peeping tom who was outside of her 15-year-old daughter’s window.
It was reported that the suspect, 19-year-old Zane Hawkings, ran after the authorities appeared on the scene. He dodged the police but couldn’t escape a mother protecting her daughter. Pena tackled the man who was looking through her daughter’s window, like a linebacker would on an football field.
“My kids are my life [and] I’m just making sure I protect them,” Pena said.
After the tackle, the mother said “The cop fist bumped me and said I heard the Texans are looking for a new linebacker.”
Moore wrote at the bottom of her post,
“That right there is what I call a Proverbs 31 Woman.
“A woman of valor, who can find?” Pr 31:10
That peeper found one and wished he hadn’t.”
