Boy Meets World actor William Daniels helped stop an attempted burglary in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday, ET can confirm.

The location of the incident was the 91-year-old actor’s home and his interference caused the culprits to run away.

“Someone tried to break into the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Daniels on Saturday evening," a rep for the actor tells ET. "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.”

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the incident and that the offenders got away.

“There was a burglary call that was generated on Saturday [in Studio City],” a spokesperson for the LAPD says. “Suspects attempted to get into the home, but didn’t complete the task and ran away and are still outstanding.”

According to TMZ, Daniels was home with his wife, Bonnie Bartlett, at the time and turned on the lights after hearing someone kick in the back door, a move which prompted the intruders to leave.

Daniels played school principal Mr. Feeny on the '90s sitcom, which resumed with a subsequent series, Girl Meets World, in 2014.
