A disabled veteran fought off an intruder in the nude! What a man! He was not about to let the man who kicked in his door on Easter Sunday do anymore damage to his home or his family.
Greg Silvery said, “My naked behind is coming and then my youngest son has a big cook knife behind me. We are looking at the guy, first he was trying to punch to get in, now he is trying to push to get away.”
That must have been a battle for the ages.
Greg Silvery said he rushed out of his bedroom after hearing his son scream for help. When he came out he saw one of his sons trying to push the front door closed as a man was trying to get in. The 6’3, 340 pound disabled Army veteran said he gave it all he had and punched the intruder in the face.
“I saw his eyes roll back and he hit that and he fell back,” said Greg.
Greg said he shut the door, laid across the floor and told his family to get back, concerned the intruder may have had a gun. His wife called 911.
“I am sorry he got hurt, but he came in to do dirt so dirt was done to him,” said Greg’s wife Rhonda Silvery.
The Silvery family said Riverdale Police quickly responded, but the attempted burglar got away. Greg said all he could think of in that moment was protecting his family.
Greg was simply protecting his family. You can’t blame the man! He said, “You have something in there that I want and I am willing to take it and I am telling him I got something here that I love, I love that woman more than I love myself.”
