A Port Alberni, B.C., senior aborted a home invasion on Sunday by wrestling a 12-gauge shotgun away from a female suspect and fending off her male accomplice, police say.

"I heard a noise while I was in bed, and it woke me up," said the man, who did not want to be identified.

"I looked up and I saw a woman at the foot of my bed. She’d been going through my drawers. I jumped out of bed and I had nothing on - I mean nothing on."

Police say the 78-year-old military veteran pursued the suspects after they left the home before calling the RCMP.

Police have arrested two suspects in the break-in.

Port Alberni is located 200 kilometres northeast of Victoria.


I assume that it was his military background that gave him his heart to attack a weapon carrying invader like this.


I’d like to meet this guy and shake his hand.
