63 Year-Old Former Marine Fights Off 22 Year-Old Attacker

A former Sergeant Major at Camp Lejeune was attacked inside his Jacksonville home but managed to fight off his knife-wielding attacker saying, "The Constitution says a home is a man's castle and I spent too much time defending our freedom to think that I was going to leave or surrender to some young punk."

The attack happened Friday morning when 63 year-old George Shea says his granddaughter's former boyfriend broke into their home. Shea says he managed to pin down 22 year-old Alan Webster before he got away.

Webster is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
