A home intruder received more than he bargained for when he broke into an apartment in North Carolina.  

ABC7 reports that 27-year-old Matthew Lawrence Bergstedt allegedly kicked down the door of an apartment in North Raleigh, North Carolina, only to get beaten by a man inside using a piece of firewood. 

Bergstedt was booked on breaking and entering charges, and pictured with two black eyes and several facial lacerations. 

Police say the incident was not a random act, as Bergstedt was once involved in a relationship with a woman who lives in the apartment he attempted to enter.  

According to the Epoch Times, Bergstedt was taken to a local jail and booked, then eventually released after posting a $3,000 bond.  

It is unclear at this point if Bergstedt has an attorney.
