A man accused of harassing a sick woman on her own doorstep has been knocked out with a single punch when her burly son arrived home from football practice.
A small child is sat close to the front door on a plastic chair as her grandmother, wearing a fluffy dressing gown, can be seen talking to two men, both wearing baseball caps.
One of the men is accused of harassing the woman who, according to her son, has fibromyalgia.
The footage shows as one of the woman’s sons arrives home in a white car and jumps out, leaving the passenger door wide open, while she shouts at the men.
The men start shouting at each other, with the son demanding the baseball-cap wearer gets out of his garden.
Seconds later the son storms in and punches the man hard, knocking him to the ground.
He was heard saying: “I’m not having it, you don’t talk to my mum like that!”
With the men continuing to shout, and the toddler looking on, another son, who had been woken up appears from inside the house.
He quickly gets involved and demands the two men leave.
He drags the punched man, whose trousers are falling down, to the pavement, before slapping the second across the face.
A third brother, who was not at the house at the time, claimed: “[My] brother turned up after playing football to find men [had] been threatening and harassing mam to get in the house and after being asked for ages to go away, they wouldn’t leave!
“God knows what would have happened if nobody came!
Mam didn’t realise her other son was also in the house asleep upstairs.”
The footage was recorded on the family’s home CCTV on Sunday, March 3 in Middlesbrough.
A spokesman for Cleveland Police told Mirror Online no crime had been reported to the force in relation to the video, and no arrests had been made.
