NORTH PORT, Florida — A buck-naked burglar who was caught in the act by cops as he trashed the outside of a woman’s home, was busted after trying to punch out a police dog who was trying to apprehend him.
Police in North Port, Florida say they got a call from a woman who had been awoken by the sound of a man banging a shovel on the outside of her home. Upon further inspection, she discovered her porch had been trashed, a glass table overturned and holes punched through her screens.
When cops arrived, they saw a naked man fleeing from the back of the house into a wooded area. A police dog then gave pursuit and when it caught up to the man, identified as 27-year-old Viktor Revega, a struggle broke out.
Cops say Revega refused order to “roll over” and lay on his stomach and even tried to punch out the police dog, named Dutch, but missed. Officers eventually managed to bring Revega under control and cuff him.
Not surprisingly, officers said they believed Revega was under the influence of drugs, so took him to a local hospital.
