STOCKTON- Abel Simmons has been a huge fan of UFC for years. But never did he imagine that he would be using the moves to defend himself or his family from a carjacking suspect. The 29 year old Stockton man was able to able to stop and hold down his attacker until police came.
Simmons says his family was pulling up to their home on East Jefferson Street on Saturday night. They had just returned from watching a UFC fight.
They were in the driveway when a man came up and started pounding on the back window of their SUV. Then, the suspect tried opening the back door where Simmon's sons - a newborn and 2 year old-- were sleeping. Fortunately, the door was locked.
Simmons, who was sitting in the passenger seat, hopped out and tried to stop the guy. His wife, who was driving, called 911.
