Suspected burglar gets beat up by homeowner in Ventura County before arrest
VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. - A homeowner turned the tables against a suspected burglar in Ventura County.
According to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, a homeowner came home to at least two people trying to steal his stuff. The homeowner saw one person running from the house ("Suspect 1") but the second suspect ("Suspect 2"), however, was not able to complete his illegal mission.
Deputies described the incident between Suspect 2 and the homeowner as a "physical confrontation." However, judging by the mugshot of the suspect – later identified as Alexis Provoste – it appears the homeowner was able to hand Provoste a major beat down before deputies arrived at the house to arrest him.

Deputies say Provoste is originally from Chile.
Officials did not specify what ended up happening to the first suspect after arresting Provoste. As of Wednesday night, it is also unknown what the first suspect ended up stealing when they ran off from the Ventura County house.
