A 15-year-old boy was stabbed twice in the hand after taking on two burglars who were dressed like Ninjas.
Charlie McGhee, his dad Arthur and brother Joshua, 16, chased the pair from their home in Millers Way, Houghton Regis early this morning.
As they held onto one of the pair Charlie was stabbed with a Stanley knife.
Arthur said: “They came in the house. My sons came upstairs said two blokes dressed like Ninjas have come in.
“We went up the road after them and held them and called the old boy.
“They ran off but Charlie blocked him and wouldn’t let him go.
“His mate stabbed him twice in the hand to try and let his mate go, but he held on and the police arrived.
“Fortunately both boys are tough.
“They do karate.”
Charlie was treated at the Luton and Dunstable hospital.

A total of 256 people were on board last December when parts of the engine on the Boeing 777 broke off.
“Considerable amounts” of debris fell on Broxbourne, on 27 December 2012, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) report said.
The Royal Brunei Airlines jet returned to Heathrow, where he landed safely.
AAIB officials described the incident as “serious”, with the jet becoming the 15th to develop the same engine problem.
Their report stated that having also taken off from Heathrow, the Dubai-bound jet was flying at about 15,000ft (4,572m) when crew heard a “loud rumbling” noise, prompting the 56-year-old captain to turn back.
It was later found that the right-hand Rolls-Royce Trent engine’s inboard thrust reverser was missing a large amount of material from its inner wall and, consequently, the exhaust nozzle had been damaged and become loosely attached.
The AAIB said a number of inspections and modifications were already in place “to try to mitigate inner wall damage and potential parts liberation.”
Its report added that Boeing had advised that the USA’s Federal Aviation Administration may mandate inner-wall replacement on all Rolls-Royce-powered Boeing 777s.
No passengers were hurt in the incident. The AAIB report gave no details of any damage to the property In Broxbourne or if anyone was hurt on the ground
