Elderly veteran kills home intruder who attacked his wife

An elderly veteran bludgeoned an armed home intruder to death in South Carolina after the assailant attacked his wife with a knife, authorities said.

Herbert Parrish, 82, was inside with his 79-year-old wife, Lois, when they heard a knock Monday at the back door of their home in Aiken County, news station WACH reported.

“I opened the door and he said he was looking for his little white chihuahua and wanted to know if I saw it,” Lois told the outlet.

But when Lois told him that she had not and tried to close the door, the man, later identified as 61-year-old Harold Runnels, forced his way inside the house.

Runnels then pulled out a large knife and began attacking her, the outlet reported.

Parrish, who is a Vietnam veteran, said that he feared for the couple’s lives, so he decided to “do something quick and get the edge on him.”

“I felt, we’re gone. He’s going to kill us
