Oklahoma City Police say a man opened the door to his garage and was attacked by a burglary suspect.

The victim was at his home in the 1000 block of S.W. 52nd Street on the afternoon of November 24. He said he was in the kitchen when he heard a noise coming from the garage.

The victim opened the door and found a man standing there. Another door leading from the garage to the outdoors had been forced open.

According to a police report, when the suspect – identified as 19-year-ld Jonathan Wise -- saw the homeowner, he said, "I'm sorry. I'll pay for the damages."

The victim told police as soon as Wise said that, he punched the homeowner in the face and pulled him into the garage.

The two struggled and ended up in the driveway. The victim managed to get Wise on the ground and hold him down. He then yelled for help and asked for someone to call 911.

A neighbor called police, who arrived a few minutes later. Wise received some injuries during the fight and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

After the hospital released Wise, officers arrested him and booked him into the Oklahoma County jail for first-degree burglary.
