LL Cool J
came face-to-face with a burglary suspect in his home, and took the guy down with his own hands early this morning ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources ... the suspect entered LL's Los Angeles area house around 2AM, but unfortunately for him the actor/rapper/badass was home.

We're told LL heard some commotion downstairs, went to check it out ... and found the intruder.

Sources say the intruder had tripped LL's alarm system, but the "NCIS Los Angeles" star -- who is a physical beast -- decided to go hand-to-hand combat on the dude ... and managed to detain him until LAPD arrived a few minutes later to make the arrest.

We're told LL is okay, but the suspect -- who will be booked for burglary -- suffered a few bruises.

Mama said knock you out.

He should have done the world a favor and killed him. I have a few .357s in my house waiting for the opportunity.

He can't help it if the intruder kept running into his fists and boots. He tried to stop but the intruder wasn't having it.

Mental illness or not, you don't b/e anyone's place; especially someone like LL. He's lucky he didn't beat him with his own ripped off arms. LL - a good role model and hero. Thank you LL!
