Landlord thwarts burglary attempt

A burglar in Massachusetts picked the wrong apartment to attempt to rob. The landlord and owner, John Alfonso, was doing renovations to the empty unit when someone started attempting to break in. The would-be burglar came through the door to find Mr Alfonso there with a weapon drawn and ready for him. The landlord remained calm, never taking a shot at him as he told him that he had the wrong apartment. When the man tried to run Alfonso put the gun down and chased after him, tackling him to the ground until police could arrive and arrest him.
While other tenants were nervous about the break in, one said that she was just happy that Mr Alfonso was there and took care of the situation. It frightened her, but she said she trusted her landlord to take care of the matter.
