The incident took place on Sunday, according to a report by the Daily Mail, and video of the encounter was captured by a home security camera.
When the unidentified father learned that a man was looking at his children through the windows of their home, he picked up his gun and raced outside.
He rounded the corner of his house and found the man, who was positioned near a window that allowed him to see the father’s two sleeping children.
The dad, who was also carrying a flashlight, grabbed the unwelcome visitor by the collar and drug the man away from the window.
As he pushed the man away from his home, the father also hit the man in the back of the head.
The peeping Tom, who was wearing a backpack in the footage, then ran down the street.
Near the end of the video, the man’s face is clearly visible.
The father said that the man had “propped a bike” up against his house, allowing him to see through the window. A neighbor noticed the man and contacted the father.
It isn’t clear where the incident occurred, though it is believed to be a home in the United States.
