BREAKING NEWS – Miami, Florida – A Florida man who was attacked by an intruder on Saturday fought back, and now the suspect is in police custody, authorities said. At around 10:20 p.m., Barry Sands was asleep at home when he woke up to what sounded like a “hysterical female banging on the front door of the residence, asking for help,” according to the arrest affidavit. Sands opened the front door and was allegedly attacked by a man identified by police as Mark Katsnelson, 35, court records said. A Florida man opened the front door of his home and that is when he was attacked, court records say. Katsnelson forced his way into the home as he was striking Sands with his hands, the complaint said, adding that Sands had a cut on his lip and toe as a result of the alleged attack. Sands punched Katsnelson several times in the face in what seemed to be a case of self-defense, police said. He then called 911. Katsnelson suffered facial injuries and was transported to medical facilities in Florida for treatment. His attorney said he plans on suing Sands for an assault/excessive force based on the amount of punches his client was hit with and the amount of power behind each blow. He’s also suing for lost wages, alleging that Katsnelson was deprived of the money he would’ve made after selling or pawning Sands property that he planned on stealing.
