A Beloit dad is being hailed a hero and "Father of the Year" after he had to do the unthinkable earlier this week- confront a man who was peeping in his 15-year-old daughter's window.

According to WREX, Isreal Galindo, a registered sex offender, was chased down by the victim's father, they got into a scuffle and Galindo was held down until police could arrive to take him into custody.

Currently, he's being held in the Rock County jail and is charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Parents, as a precaution, I strongly encourage you to check the Illinois Sex Offender registration list to see how many registered sex offenders could be living in your neighborhood.
