Police : Grandparents attacked by granddaughter's ex-boyfriend

A night of threats and violence left a 77-year-old woman and her 82-year-old husband afraid for their lives.

They say they were attacked in their own home by their granddaughter's ex-boyfriend.

Fort Worth Police are looking for 28-year-old Ryan Carpenter.

He's wanted on three warrants for assaulting the elderly, burglary, and aggravated assault.

The family fears he may do something much worse if given the chance.

"I keep thinking that he's going to come back and do what he's going to do," says victim, Jo Hernandez.

She had just finished celebrating her husband John's 82nd birthday when around 9:30 PM, the family says Carpenter showed up at their back door.

The family says Carpenter eventually forced his way in, beat Jo, and ransacked the home.

The locks are now changed, and the family is on guard, just in case he comes back.
