Man Beats Neighbor’s Attacker With Baseball Bat
Possibly the only thing more brutal than getting beaten with a baseball bat…would have to be calling the cops on yourself so they can come arrest you after you’ve already been beaten with a baseball bat. Via The Toronto Sun:
A Saskatoon man says when he heard his female neighbour being attacked, he grabbed his baseball bat and headed next door.
Jean-Pierre Veilleux was getting himself and his kids ready for the day when he heard a loud noise Friday morning and ran to his neighbour’s place and saw a man.
“I hit him with my baseball bat just to kind of subdue him and then we kind of had words back and forth, I hit him a couple more times and pretty much chased him out of the house,” Veilleux said.
He chased the man down the back alley and hit him again before pinning him to the ground.
“He was just begging ‘please don’t hit me’ and I said ‘take out your cellphone and call the cops right now buddy. You’re going to jail,’” said Veilleux, who held the man until police arrived.
Unbeknownst to Veilleux during this time, his neighbour had been stabbed multiple times by the man with a pair of scissors. She and the man were taken taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Saskatoon police are still investigating but say the woman and man know each other and this was not a random act.
SMH! That lady should be thankful to have such a concerned neighbor…
