LL Cool J woke up to the sound of a burglar after hearing a noise in his home and was able to overpower the suspect until police arrived to make the arrest.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that the burglar broke into LL Cool J’s house around 2 a.m. Wednesday. The 44-year-old “NCIS: Los Angeles” actor heard a noise downstairs and went to see what was going on. That’s when he encountered the intruder and took him down.

He held onto the suspect until cops arrived. No one was seriously injured, though police say the suspect suffered a few bruises.

The suspect, whose identity was not immediately released, faces burglary charges.

Just after 3 a.m. Wednesday, LL Cool J’s daughter, Samaria Smith, 16, tweeted: “One crazy crazy night. #speechless”.

“LL Cool J and his family are safe and thank everyone for their thoughts and concern. As a father, husband and citizen, he is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities on this private matter,” a rep for LL Cool J said in a statement.
