Homeowner “Hog Ties” Alleged Burglary Suspect

LUZERNE TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – State police say an alleged burglary suspect was taken to the hospital overnight after being “hog tied” at a home in Fayette County.

The incident happened just before 12:30 a.m. along East Avenue in Luzerne Township.

According to state police, the homeowner, John Nakutis, returned to his residence to find the front door kicked in and a man inside after being alerted that his alarm had been activated.

Investigators say Nakutis and his nephew were able to hog tie the suspect and hold him there until police arrived at the scene.

The suspect was taken to Mon Valley Hospital, but there is no report on his injuries or condition.

    Great story.

    (I respectfully submit that calling him an “alleged suspect” is redundant. He’s either an alleged burglar or a burglary suspect.)

    The dor is kicked in, the alarm is going off and the home owner finds a stranger in his house but KDKA reports this guy as the “alleged” burglary suspect.

    Waits to find out homeowners are being sued by suspect . lol

  7. Scott Madsen says:

    The criminal was sent to a hospital? Probably going to sue the victim for a faked back injury, collect damages, then send a check to the DNC

    Normally Fayette County residents consider this foreplay in their mating rituals, but it also came in handy here. LOL…….

    The homeowner has no rights.

    The poor, poor “alleged” suspect should sue. He has a right to steal and should not be held against his will.

    Just kidding. The homeowner should have shot him like they did that “alleged” guy over in Baldwin. One less loser to deal with.

    i am sure it was the suspects parents fault. Of course some lawyer will say its the homeowner fault for having the stuff he wanted to steal

  12. John says:

    hahahahaha! A few members of my family live right next to where this happent and met the guy ( they dont socialize with him he just bothers them.) what the news fails to tell you is that he didnt actually steal anything. he just broke in and ate two bags of french fries and a gallon of orange juice. hes not a burglar. just a brain fried alchohalic.

    haha. he didnt steal anything. he was just a drunk who broke in, ate 2 bags of french fries and a gallon of orange juice. I live in the area. jail is where this guy belongs.
