The 91-year-old was home in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, 89, when the attempted burglary happened.

Daniels quickly turned on lights in the house when the suspect forced open a front door, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to KABC Tuesday.

"Luckily, Mr. Daniels was able to frighten away the person and the LAPD quickly responded," Daniels' publicist said in a statement to KABC. "They are both well. Mr. Daniels thanks all his fans for their concern."

People reported that Daniels' former "Boy Meets World" co-star, Will Friedle, tweeted in response to the news.

“Don’t ever mess with Mr. Feeny!” he wrote.

Despite a number of burglaries and attempted burglaries of celebrity homes in L.A., police do not believe Daniels and Bartlett were targeted.

LAPD public information officer Rosario Herrera told BuzzFeed News the suspect is still at large.
