SEAGROVE, N.C. – An 84-year-old former military policeman fought off an armed man at his home near Seagrove on Thursday night.

The Asheboro Courier-Tribune reported that Neil Meisch fought back after the suspect showed up at his home, demanding his car keys.

The paper reported that Meisch’s 83-year-old wife answered the door to find the suspect, Tony Curtis Davis, 49, of Jackson Springs.

“There was a man with the storm door open and a gun in my face,” said Bonnie Meisch, according to the paper. “He ordered me to give him my car keys and I told him, ‘Hell, no,’ he wasn’t getting anything and yelled for Neil.”

Bonnie said she then called for her husband, who came running to help.

“He grabbed the man and took him for a ride off the porch,” she said. “All I could see then was fists.”

Officials said the suspect was arrested after crashing his car on Okeewemee Road in Montgomery County on Thursday night.

The suspect reportedly faces multiple charges, including kidnapping, from at least five law enforcement agencies.

    Lol, lol, this Guy thought he was a Real Thug & then he went to a house where he thought it would be a easy Touch, but he didn’t count on 2 people that Just wasn’t going to allow this Filth to get anything from them so, the Wife stopped him 1st, then Mr. Meisch came to her rescue ready to go up side this guy’s head, then the wanna-be Thug ran away like the Coward he is beaten by two 80 year old Hero’s because that’s what they are in my estimation, but, I wish Mr. Meisch had just shot the guy & saved somebody else the trouble, Good for those People they held their ground & didn’t give an inch, I bet they won’t have any more trouble with thugs, lol, lol
