Tables Turned on Burglar Who Gets Beaten With His Own Baseball Bat: Cops
Police in North Port, Florida, say a husband and wife teamed up on 33-year-old Noah Dassat.
A burglary attempt in Florida recently ended badly for the home invader after police say he was beaten with his own weapon.
North Port Police say Noah Dassat, 33, was arrested Thursday after he allegedly broke into a home and lunged at a resident with a black wooden baseball bat.
The resident, identified in a police report as 40-year-old Jason Petty, would later tell police that Dassat had visited his home the day prior in search of someone named "Josh" who owed him money.
When Dassat allegedly returned the next day, police say he attacked Petty with the bat as his three kids aged 2 to 10 stood by.
Petty told police he was able to wrestle Dassat into a bear hug. During the struggle, Jason's wife Allison Young grabbed the bat "in fear for the lives of her three children," accoriding to the arrest report.
Young said she was able to get in several serious blows to Dassart's head.
Police say Dassart was then able to flee, though he left behind the bat, a hat, and a lot of blood.
During the investigation, North Port Police were contacted about a man with head injuries matching the suspect's description at a Port Charlotte hospital.
Initially, police say the man gave his name as Jordan Catalano at the hospital. He allegedly told authorities he was from Ecuador and had no American identification.
However, by running a check on a car in the hospital parking lot that had blood on the door and seatbelt, police say they were able to determine Dassart's identity.
Dassat was arrested at the hospital after admitting his real name to a nurse, police say. He is currently in the Charlotte County Jail with no bond.
