A suspected burglar got a surprise when he tried to break into an Oklahoma City home, only to find out that a boxing and kickboxing trainer lives there.

Jonathan Wise, 19, was arrested on Dec. 1 – with two black eyes and in need of stitches – after trying to rob the home of Norm Houston, police say.

"I heard a thumbing noise on my garage door," Houston told KFOR. "I swung open my back door and somebody was standing there."

Police say Wise threw a punch at Houston before getting into an altercation.

"You know I ain't the toughest, but I can hold my own," Houston said.

Wise was charged with burglary.
