OKLAHOMA CITY – A suspected house burglar was left bloodied and beaten after a fist-fight with the homeowner.
Oklahoma City Police arrested Jonathan Wise, 19, for burglary.
When officers took him into custody, Wise had two black eyes and needed stitches.
Norm Houston, the homeowner, told police he found Wise inside his garage.
“I heard a thumbing noise on my garage door,” Houston said. “I swung open my backdoor and somebody was standing there.”
Houston was face to face with Wise.
According to Oklahoma City Police, that’s when Wise attacked Houston.
“The burglar started out by apologizing to him for getting into the garage and said he had fixed the damage only to follow that up by punching him in the face,”OKC Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.
Although he didn’t throw the first punch, Houston beat up Wise.
Houston works as a personal trainer and specializes in boxing and kickboxing.
“You know I ain’t the toughest but I can hold my own,” Houston said.
Houston held Wise down on the ground until police arrived.
Before he was taken to jail, police took Wise to the hospital for treatment.
