NORTH PORT, FL (WFLA) – A man who broke into a North Port home had to run away after he was beaten by his victims with his own weapon, North Port Police detectives said.
It happened last week in a home on Kenneth Street. Noah Dassat, 33, of California, broke into the home and attacked its occupants. Police said three children were in the home at the time of the break-in.
After the man of the house was hit, he managed to wrestle Dassat and put him in a ‘bear hug,’ detectives said. His wife grabbed Dassat’s bat and beat him with his own weapon.
Dassat escaped, running away from the house with significant injuries and without his hat and bat, according to police.
While investigating the case, NPPD was contacted about a man with head injuries at a Port Charlotte hospital. He matched the description of the suspect and was arrested.
He is in the Charlotte County jail. His bond has not been set.
