BEECH ISLAND, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - When a home invader targeted an elderly Aiken County couple, he didn’t know what he was in for.
They fought back.
It happened not long before 1 p.m. Monday when a man knocked on the door of a home on Dicks Street near Beech Island.
He reportedly said he was looking for his dog.
When the door was opened, the man pushed his way into the home of a man and a woman who are 79 and 81 years old, according to a family member.
The husband is a veteran.
The couple fought back, knocking down the intruder who was wielding a knife.
He apparently lost some teeth in the encounter.
