This guy's car was getting stolen -- so he jumped through the window and took out the alleged thief

In Australia, a man allegedly tried to steal a car that was parked at a gas station.

As soon the car’s owner saw that his car was being stolen, he ran right back to it, leaped through the open window, and scared off the alleged carjacker, who can be seen running off into the night.
