I think when your roommate comes home, he will be shouting, "My hero!! My hero!!!!" And just in time for Valentine's Day, too!! Sounds like things will be getting pretty hot and heavy in central Phoenix.
But seriously, I'm glad you're okay and that was a very brave thing of you do to. Your roommate is very fortunate to have you as a friend.

wish we had a garage, but all we've got is a fence and a cement driveway. granted the next-door neighbors' dogs tipped me off, and i had more than a mallet lol....i was carrying a glock in my right hand, mallet in my left. i think they saw the gun cuz i flipped the lights and just charged them haha. i was so scared yet pissed that i just went for the, 4 mexican boys from what i could see too. thank god they apparently weren't armed because a firefight would've been horrible

No less horrible than killing a boy either I'm sure.
As you say it's lucky they weren't armed otherwise things could get messy.
They might come back prepared next time, you better upgrade to a rifle.
(Don't you love escalation)

What is a "glock" ?
glad you are okay, my x father in laws van got broke into once (stole the stereo) so he put up a cam outside and has a small black and white tv that sits next to his big screen one so he can keep an eye on it, works in flooring so also has tons of expensive equipment....so far no more break ins.

Be careful, Lost likely if they could see valuable property in the van they will be back. or they will tell some "friends" about it.
If you can disable the van so that they can not steal it.
In most cases when they find a service truck they hot-wire it and take it somewhere they can unload it instead of just breaking in and stealing a few items.
One company i work for had a heavy gage screen barrier behind the seat that protected the driver from flying tools and a kill switch hidden to stop the van from starting even when hot-wired.
And they tried more then once to steal these vans but never got one started.
