So....

Wife went to her parents house about 10:15 because they are getting on a bit now and she hasnt seen them for a week or so....

I was upstairs in our bedroom...


I had just got changed into my scruffs, because Im doing a bit of decorating in my sons room, thought Id just check email and have a quick look on Ebay....

Dog started to bark, he does this if the wind changes direction - but I looked on the CCTV cameras anyway and saw nothing, so thought nothing of it....

A minute or so went by, and out the corner of my eye I saw a shadow... thinking that maybe my middle lad had come home from school early... went to see what he came home for... some fella was stood with his back to me, then turned round... honestly I **** meself, then andrenalin started to kick in, I grabbed hold of him and started to ask questions like... who the F are you....? What the F are you doing in my sons room etc.... He said he was a taxi driver and his fair had just run off from him and he was looking for someone called John... I escorted him via his throat down the stairs to find this 'taxi'... then he said his 'mate' was driving the taxi and must have drove off finding this fella called John...

We went outside, saw no taxi, he started to struggle and plead with me to let him go and he couldnt breathe... I wasn't letting him go, nor was I loosening my grip of him.... went back into my house to get my phone to call police, he started pushing me back, I dragged him outside again and threw him to floor... Now anyone thats ever met me will tell you Im not exactly big, maybe a bit fat but not big, Im 5'5 1/2 and 14 stone.... at this point there was a neighbour walking by with her dog and baby in pram, she stopped and saw what had happened and asked do I need Police, yes was the answer.... she called the Police and went about her business.... I had him pinned up against our front fence and front of our house with my elbow on his throat and my other hand gripping his coat.... I loosened my grip a little bit as he was turning blue and gasping for breath, as he started to sit down he pushed me away from him and pissed off.... I chased after him, I cant run and he was getting away from me, fortunately another neighbour must have heard the shouting etc... and saw this fella running from me.... he rugby tackled him to the ground, thankfully... I caught up and knelt on his chest, this time I wasnt gonna let go of him if he turned blue or any other colour... I dragged him back to my house and waited for the Police to turn up.... it fealt like ages but was only a couple of minutes of that....

Anyhoo the long and short of it, a scumbag is off the street, Im not hurt - I cant say that he isnt...


Iv had the Police onto me this morning telling me that he was kept in custody overnight, he will be going to court today, and confident he will get a couple of years away.

He's been charged with a number of offences, as he'd been into someone else's house before coming to mine....

It seems that just googling his name has brought up a few things about him, he just doesn't learn, do they ever....?


He's called Neil (cant tell you his full name for legal reasons)


Sorry for the long post....

Wow, great, just shows what you'll do when the adrenalin kicks in, don't know if I'd have the bottle to do it but I'd like to think I would.

Honestly - I always said that if I catch someone in my house - especially upstairs - they would fall down the stairs a few times then left outside in the street being attended to by the ambulance I call for them.... but that didnt happen, I just escorted him outside with his throat, and held hi until the Police arrived....

 

Iv got CCTV of him and me outside, but can't convert it to an AVI or MP4 format to play on ordinary things like a phone or PC....

just googled him - 

 

what a nasty piece of crap he is

 

bet the coppers already knew him

 

good catch - hope you washed your hands after handling excrement like that

 

I really couldn't say how I would react after that , esp after adrenaline kicks in

 

I have in the past throttled a bloke who punched a barmaid in the face for not serving him

 

not sure how I would react to a thief in my house , think I would be shocked first , then angry later

Next time just finish him off and dump his corpse in the woods. It will save tax payers money and possibly cause you less hassle. I've learnt this the hard way.

 

Back in 2012 (as some of you may remember as I put it on here) I had three youngsters attack me and try and rob me. After getting back up onto my feet and walking into my house (a matter of yards away), I picked up a tea towel to stop the bleeding, a 3' breaker bar and went after the little s***es.

 

Long story short. 7 months later I get called back to Coventry Police station where I get an almighty verbal b*****king from the police. Fortunately I didn't receive anything more than that as I never managed to catch any of them or inflict any injuries (if I had I wouldn't have bothered phoning the police afterwards). I asked them had they managed to catch them and the answer was no. They've never been caught.

 

My point to my post is, good on you for getting him but don't be surprised if there is some potential backlash afterwards. While you've not caused any injuries by the sound of it and so have nothing to fear in the long term, expect to be called back to the police station for another interview and have your time wasted.
