(WATCH) Alleged Waukesha Christmas Killer’s Arrest Captured On Ring Doorbell (VIDEO)

According to footage acquired by NBC News, the man suspected of driving his car through a parade of Christmas revelers in Wisconsin was seen on a doorbell camera before cops detained him appealing for help and lying to a resident saying that he was waiting for an Uber.

The footage from Nov. 21 also shows officers arriving at the suspect’s Waukesha house and instructing Darrell Brooks, 39, to put his hands up in surrender.

It is unclear if the house, which is about a half-mile from the Waukesha Christmas parade route where Brooks is suspected of plowing through, is the location where he was taken placed under arrest by police.

NBC’s requests for comment from the Waukesha Police Department did not receive a response

Brooks can be seen pounding on the front door of Rider’s home in recordings given to NBC News by resident Daniel Rider. Brooks is dressed in a T-shirt and shivering on Rider’s front porch when the films were taken.

It was shot just after 5 p.m. local time, roughly 20 minutes after Brooks reportedly tore through parade route barricades, killing five people and injuring dozens more, according to a timestamp on the video.

Brooks’ voice can be heard stating, “I called an Uber and I’m supposed to be waiting for it over here, but I don’t know when it’s coming. Can you call it for me please? I’m homeless.”

Rider, who had been out on a hunting trip and was watching football at the time of the collision, said that he had no idea what had just transpired a few streets away.

He said that he allowed Brooks into the house and gave him a jacket, a sandwich, and let him use his phone.

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

Rider said that he requested Brooks to leave, and that Brooks did. Rider said that after his neighbor called the police, Brooks began “pounding” on Rider’s front door, claiming he’d forgotten his ID in the house.

“Then the next thing you know, you see the cops with lights on him saying, ‘hands in the air, hands in the air.'”

Brooks was seen pacing on Rider’s front porch when the cops arrived and ordered him to put his hands up.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” he can be heard repeating as he appears to comply with the instructions.

A separate domestic violence case against Brooks, who has a significant criminal history that includes allegations of sexual assault and battery, was filed on Nov. 5. He was freed six days later after posting a $1,000 cash bail.
