‘I just grabbed a golf club and ran out the front,’ Mr Lapey told 7News. 

‘You can’t expect the cops to sit here and wait for them so something has to happen.’

The teenagers have been driving the cars recklessly without any number plates and police haven’t been able to identify the hoons to this day.  

Several skid marks and smoke have been left behind by the teens on the road of the cul de sac where Mr Lapey lives. 

His partner, Jodie Palmer, described the burnouts of as ‘super loud’. 

‘Even when I’m in bed it’s like really stressful,’ she said. 

‘There’s no number plates and you can’t see anyone inside if they’re male or female.’

Another neighbour, who asked to remain anonymous, said he had attempted to chase one of the hoons. 

‘It’s just extremely loud and it’s just getting beyond a joke,’ he told the network. 

The teenagers, who have returned to the street several times, have quickly fled the scene each visit by driving through a narrow alleyway. 

Neighbours rang police again in the hopes they would be caught. 

A Queensland police spokesman told Daily Mail Australia they are aware of the incident and are investigating.

No one has been arrested at this stage, including Mr Lapey, who smashed a car with a golf club.

‘Police will only make the decision to arrest if a complaint has been made,’ the spokesman said.
