Police: Man invades Florida home, beaten with his own bat A California man tried to rob a Florida home last Thursday, but he ended up with multiple injuries after police said the homeowners grabbed his bat and beat him with it. Noah Dassat, 33, broke into a North Port area home Thursday armed with a baseball bat and attacked the occupants, WFLA reported. The home was occupied by a man and his wife as well as their three children and their grandmother, police said. Charlotte County Sheriff's Office According to police, the husband wrestled Dassat down and put him in a bear hug while his wife took Dassat’s bat and beat him. The suspect got away and ran from the house. Police said they were contacted about a man matching the description of the robber visiting a nearby hospital with head injuries. He was brought into custody. “There was police everywhere looking for him and it went on for hours,” a neighbor told WFLA. “The guy’s got him held down, yup. That’s how we roll around here.” Spokesman Josh Taylor told WWSB that North Port police don’t condone violence, and that the couple was simply protecting their family. “You have the right to protect your home and yourself so do what you've got to do, I guess,” he said. "This is a home that had a mom, a dad, a grandmother and three small children, I can tell you what I'd do if somebody broke into my house." Dassat was arrested on a charge of having an out-of-county warrant. Read more at WFLA.
