Man in underwear chases burglars

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, July 2 (UPI) -- A shotgun-wielding man in West Valley City, Utah, chased a pair of burglars from his home while wearing nothing but a pair of boxer shorts, police said.

Tony Gamonal grabbed a shotgun and gave chase when the burglars fled from his home, The Salt Lake Tribune reported Wednesday.

Police arrived on the scene and Gamonal helped apprehend a female suspect while the second suspect, a male, managed to escape.

Gamonal said he didn't realize until after the suspect was arrested that he was outside in his underwear.

"I looked down and said, 'oh man ... here I am,'" he said.

He said this was the second time in two weeks that his home had been burgularized. He said he intends to protect his home at all times, regardless of his attire.

"If you can't be safe in your own home, where can you be?" Gamonal said. "There was no doubt; I was so mad that I would have shot them."
