A New Mexico man thwarted a would-be car thief and then took a seat -- on the suspect -- until police arrived, according to a report from New Mexico television station KOAT.

The man chased the suspect, subdued him and sat on him until police arrived during an incident earlier this month that was caught on video, according to the KOAT report.
