William Daniels, who played Mr. Feeny in Boy Meets World, stopped an attempted burglary at his home over the weekend.
TMZ reports that Daniels, 91, and his wife Bonnie Bartlett were at their San Fernando Valley home Saturday night when someone tried to kick in the back door at 9:20 p.m. Daniels quickly turned on the lights, prompting the intruder to flee the property.
His rep confirmed the news to PEOPLE in a statement: “Someone tried to break in to the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Daniels on Saturday evening. Luckily, Mr. Daniels was able to frighten away the person and the LAPD quickly responded. They are both well. Mr. Daniels thanks all his fans for their concern.”
According to TMZ, despite a recent surge of burglaries in the area targeting celebrities, authorities believe the attempted burglary was a random act and that Daniels was not targeted.
