MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Alexis Quiros says he got the call from a neighbor late Friday afternoon telling him that someone broke into his North Miami home.
When Quiros arrived home, he said he wanted to make sure the burglar got what was coming to him.
“Whoever goes in somebody’s house, needs to die,” Quiros said. “You don’t do that.”
Quiros who told police he confronted and beat a burglar who broke into his North Miami home Friday afternoon. And he didn’t mince words about it.
“From the upstairs all the way to downstairs he got his (expletive) tore up,” Quiros said.
Quiros said he arrived home from work and found the burglar in the upstairs of the house. He suspects the thief got into the home by climbing onto the upper portion of the home.
“I find this dude in the top floor like he own the house,” Quiros told reporters.
When Quiros confronted him, he said he showed the burglar no mercy and there are blood stains in parts of the home to prove it.
“Grab him by the head and go to work on him,” Quiros said about the confrontation, adding that he was like “Mike Tyson.”
Quiros said the man left in bad shape but he’s ok.
“You’re not hurting at all?” a reporter asked.
“No,” Quiros replied. “He is.”
North Miami Police aren’t saying much about the crime. But Alexis Quiros made it clear he’s willing to protect his home and his housemates no matter what.
“I never seen the guy,” Quiros said. “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.”
Quiros said he hopes that young man who broke into his home gets some help. He said if only the man had come to his front door and knocked and asked for help, he would have gladly given it.
Authorities said an ambulance had to be called to the residence, where emergency medical technicians proceeded to render aid to the suspect.
Police said the suspect had to be bandaged, before being placed in a police car.
The suspect, who was identified late Friday as Nigel Richardson, was taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown.
