    Peter MacLeod has had a good scare on Monday when he came face to face with a burglar, entering the house in Repentigny. The comedian, 48-year-old, who has been close to death in a plane crash in 2013, has bravely managed to neutralize the individual until the police arrived.

    Peter MacLeod did not expect to play hero this week. Monday afternoon, the comedian was quietly coming back from a visit to his chalet des Cantons-de-l Is in the company of his girlfriend, Angy, and the latter’s daughter, aged 9 years.

    The first to enter in their house in Repentigny, Angy is quickly returned to see the comedian, to tell him that an individual was inside.

    “I told my girlfriend to call 911, told MacLeod in the Journal. I then entered the house to find that the guy had locked himself in the closet of the bedroom of the small. “

    Armed with a simple metal rod, which he had in his truck, the comedian has done neither one nor two, and he asked the burglar to his knees, near the bed.

    “I told him that if he moved, this really would not be a good day for him,” said MacLeod. He was really surprised to see me there. Just to see his look, the guy seemed to be intoxicated. “

    According to the comedian, the burglar has complied without any show of violence.

    “He has not had the opportunity to resist,” he said. I have not had the time to see if he had a weapon in his pockets. Everything is done very quickly. “

    Quick response

    At the end of three or four minutes, the police arrived on the scene and proceeded to arrest the individual, who was scheduled to appear Tuesday at the courthouse in Joliette.

    “I found that the police de Repentigny had been really effective,” says the one who dwells in this house for 16 years.

    The thief knew that the comedian lived in this house ? “I can’t say, replied MacLeod. But it would surprise me, because the police recovered a bag which contained items that were not for me. I believe that this was not her first house of the day. “

    Peter MacLeod had temporarily disabled his alarm system for the weekend, because someone had to come and do small jobs for him. According to him, the burglar arrested at his home was not in cahoots with the repairer.

    “It is impossible, he says. This is only a coincidence. The guy has made the tour of the house before you smash the front door. “
