Man Who Hospitalised Burglar Could Face Charges

Man Who Hospitalised Burglar Could Face Charges

A father from Hull who chased, assaulted and hospitalised a burglar who had broken into his home while his baby daughter and partner slept upstairs may face charges.

The unnamed man chased Michael Carr, 42, from his home and is reported to have beaten him severely after apprehending the burglar.

According to the Hull Daily Mail, Hull Crown Court heard that the man's partner was woken by 'the sound of banging'.

The paper reports that Prosecutor Cathrine Kioko-Gilligan said the man's partner had initially thought the sound to be her neighbours and tried to go back to sleep, before becoming alarmed 'to hear the living room door creak' and the 'front door banging open'.

Miss Kioko-Gilligan said: "She rushed to the top of the stairs, where she was able to see a person leaving her property with a black bag slung over his shoulder."

She woke her partner up, who chased the intruder, while she called the police.

Soon after, the woman's partner returned with a black bag containing a PlayStation the burglar had stolen. The bag also contained a "Samsung 4 mobile phone, jewellery, cash, a 'distinctive' wallet, a pink purse and a heart-shaped box were missing following the early-morning raid on December 27."

Following the burglary, the father is reported to have gone out in search of the would-be burglar while his mother came to help at home. When he did not return, she went out in search of him and "saw an ambulance and a person being attended to, and that person was this defendant," according to Miss Kioko-Gilligan.

The defendant's partner is said to be "concerned for the safety of her daughter" and "often upset and crying".

Meanwhile, after initially pleading not guilty, Carr admitted burglary.

He has 80 previous offences, but did not commit any between 2006 and 2016.

He is reported to have lapsed back into drug use and crime after his mother died.

Dale Brook, mitigating on behalf of Carr, said his mother's death had seen the man relapse.

Brook said Carr was now on the "recovery wing" in prison and had reduced his methadone dose from 30ml to 6ml, which Judge Simon Jack called 'very impressive', according to the Mail.

He was 'badly beaten' when he was discovered by police officers and hospitalised. It remains to be seen what - if any - charges may be brought upon his assailant.
