The man who was arrested and charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide after driving his SUV through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday appeared to be caught on a Ring security camera asking a homeowner to call him an Uber just after the deadly incident.

Obtained by Fox News, the Ring camera footage appears to show suspect Darrell Brooks knocking on the door of a local home roughly 20 minutes after Brooks allegedly killed five people and injured nearly 50 others, including children.

“I called an Uber and I’m supposed to be waiting over here but I don’t know when it’s coming. Can you call it for me please?” the suspect asks homeowner Daniel Rider in the video. “I’m homeless.”

Rider allows Brooks to use his phone, despite not knowing him.  

“All of a sudden, I look outside my street and I see a few cop cars drive by and I’m getting extra nervous,” Rider reportedly said.

Rider asked Brooks to leave, and while the alleged killer complied, he quickly returned claiming to have left behind his ID.  

Moments after returning, the footage shows multiple police cars pulling up to the house, demanding Brooks put his hands up.

“Put your hands where I can see them!” one officer is heard yelling in the video.

After his arrest, one of the police officers questions Rider on his relationship with Brooks.

“Hey, do you know this guy?” the officer asks.

“Absolutely not,” Rider responds.

According to Rider, his neighbor called the police, and Rider’s girlfriend, Katrina Reigh, told Fox News Digital that Rider had given Brooks a coat and sandwich.

“He was just trying to be a Good Samaritan. He said, if he had known what was going on down the block of course he never would have let him in or anything like that. Just crazy,” Reigh said.

“I guess I was just kind of worried for Daniel’s safety. He was talking to the police so I couldn’t get ahold of him at first,” she continued. “And I had been getting texts from my parents at that point telling me what had happened at the parade and I know we live so close. I thought, ‘What are the chances that this is the guy?’ But it was.”

“He was very polite to Daniel,” Reigh added with regards to the suspect. “I think Daniel said the hardest thing that he’s realizing is, that guy had just killed however many people and he was so polite, and kind of calm.”
