An overnight worker in Chicago came home to discover a 20-something year old burglar attempting to make off with his flat-screen TV and Xbox 360 in a suitcase. That's when all hell broke loose.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the resident confronted the burglar in the apartment foyer, and the crook pulled a knife. Then, to defend himself, the resident pulled his own knife.

The fight carried out into the street, and it was broken up after officers spotted the two.

The burglar was repeatedly stabbed and was taken to the hospital, where he was placed in critical care. The victim, the Tribune reported, explained what happened to the police. No charges have been filed.
