SCHERTZ, Texas -- A high-speed chase ended with the violent takedown of a suspect on a residential street in Schertz -- all while neighbors watched in shock.

One of those neighbors captured the arrest on a cell phone camera.

The police pursuit ended in a crash and then a chase on foot.

It forced officers to secure the area, blocking off school buses full of children.

Nikki Hughes witnessed it all from her front porch.

I thought 'thank God I'm home,' because if I wasn't home, there's no telling if the door wasn't locked if he tried to get in. Mine's the first one, she said.

Hughes told KENS 5 this is the second time she has seen police take down a violent suspect in her neighborhood.

So far, Schertz police aren't commenting on the incident.
