Someone peeps on your kids, what would you do?

  • Father takes matters into his own hands when he finds man peeping on his daughters
  • Dad nearly beat his neighbor to death

An Albuquerque, New Mexico, man with two adolescent daughters could get aggravated battery charges for inflicting vigilante justice on an alleged peeping tom.

The girls' mom showed HLN affiliate KOAT how the allegedly groaning, naked man with a neighborhood reputation for inappropriate behavior was just feet from her daughters' window. The father, Emilio Chavez, 39, beat the suspect, Dylan Maho, 29, so badly, Maho ended up in the hospital in critical condition. Maho has since been upgraded to stable condition. 

Chavez was detained and interviewed, but has not been charged or arrested. It's unclear if he will be.
