According to a anonymous witness interview by www.NBC-2.com, the scene was wild and Nguyen needed to be stopped with force:

One of his victims, a Cape Coral resident who wants remain anonymous, said Nguyen had to be stopped, and the only way he knew how was by threatening him with a gun.

“He tried breaking into the house. He broke the window. I didn’t know until my mother-in-law told me what was going on. Some crazy guy going around the house,” the victim said.

A broken window and bent light pole make up the trail Tuan Nguyen’s victims said he left behind at two homes.

The first victim acted quickly to protect his wife and two-year old son inside his home.

“Then I grabbed my gun and went outside to see what was going on. I went outside, and my father-in-law was arriving too, and we both stopped him,” he said. 

The victim held Nguyen at gunpoint until police came. He tried asking him questions, but Nguyen seemed disoriented and confused.

“‘Where are you from? Who are you?’ You know, ‘Stay right there, don’t move,’ and I was on the phone with the police too,” the victim said. 

Nguyen fought back at police officers and eventually they had to use a Taser on him.

“The police arrived very quick. He resisted them, but he didn’t know what was going on,” the victim said. “He was I think on drugs. I asked him, ‘Are you high?’ And then he said yes. That’s all.”
