NORTH PORT, Fla. — A Florida burglar's plan to break into a Sarasota County home instead ended with the crook sustaining head injuries at the hand of his own weapon.
33-year-old Noah Dassat of Santa Cruz has been arrested and charged with four felony charges and one misdemeanor for armed burglary, battery, and criminal mischief.
According to North Port Police, Dassat broke into a house — filled with a married couple and three children — last Thursday armed with a baseball bat. Once inside the house, Dassat attacked a man inside the home.
However, the man placed Dassat in a bear hug, and his wife grabbed the bat and attacked the intruder.
Dassat managed to flee the house but was later apprehended by Charlotte County deputies after using a fake name at a Port Charlotte hospital.
He is currently in the Charlotte County Jail with no bond.
