Today in local Texas news: 7-year old twin brothers in San Antonio took matters into their own hands when a neighborhood man carjacked their vehicle while they were inside. Lucia Lozada, the boys' mother, parked her Nissan Altima in the driveway while she ran inside the house to grab a baby bottle. The boys waited patiently with their one-year-old brother, when a neighborhood man hopped into the front seat and started driving away.

KSAT-San Antonio reports that the twins started attacking the thief with their fists, feet and a brand new rubber snake.

"They got a snake yesterday from the store," Lucia Lozada told KSAT. "I didn't want to buy it for them, but I guess God knew that he was going to use it today."

The carjacker quickly relented to the snake-beating and dropped all three brothers off on a corner nearby, who were reunited with their family. The car thief has still not been caught.
