Do NOT Mess With a Blind Son of a Marine and His Poodle!
That is exactly what an intruder found out when attempting to rob Allen Kieta’s Indiana home the other day.
Kieta, who lost vision in one eye when he was two, and in the other after being the victim of a highway sniper of all things, had Lady Luck on his side when Alvaro Castro broke into his home. Because, when Kieta’s dog, Bella, began barking, he got out of bed and “ran right into” the intruder in the hallway, quickly engaging him in hand to hand combat. Kieta is a former high school wrestler himself, and had learned a few maneuvers from his father, who was a marine. He quickly recalled what he’d been taught and put it into action on the intruder.
It was then that Kieta dragged Castro by the belt into the kitchen, bashing his head against the wall the whole time “to keep him disoriented.”
Oddly enough it seems that Castro was not armed, because in the “30 to 40 minutes” that they fought before Kieta wrestled him into the kitchen and grabbed a knife and called the police, Castro launched no counter attack with a weapon of his own.
Kieta beat Castro into submission to the point that Castro apparently begged Kieta to let him dial 911 for him.
All the blood in the wake of the fight was that of the intruder’s, said Kieta’s wife.
