When a Florida man heard that someone may have broken into his house while he was at work, he drove straight home and took matters into his own hands — literally.
Alexis Quiros told police that he beat up the man who allegedly attempted to burglarize his North Miami home Friday afternoon, WFOR-TV reported.
“I never seen the guy,” Quiros told WFOR. “I don’t want to know him, either. But I told them, just like I told you — you disrespect my house, you gonna get served. I don’t care who it is.”
Authorities called an ambulance to transport burglary suspect Nigel Richardson to a local hospital.
What's the story?
Quiros said he received a call from a neighbor who informed him of the alleged home invasion, so he went home to take care of the situation.
“Whoever goes into somebody’s house, needs to die,” Quiros told WFOR. “You don’t do that.”
He found Richardson on the second floor of his home.
“From the upstairs all the way to downstairs he got his s**t tore up,” Quiros said. “I find this dude in the top floor like he owns the house.”
Quiros told reporters that he took care of the intruder like former boxing champion "Mike Tyson" would and there were blood stains in the home to prove it, according to WFOR.
“Grab him by the head and go to work on him,” Quiros said.
Police called paramedics who bandaged Richardson before taking him to the hospital.
A reporter asked Quiros if he was hurting from the confrontation.
"No," the homeowner responded. "He [Richardson] is."
Quiros told reporters that if the suspect had come to his door and asked for help, he would have given it.
