(ABC News) --  Don't mess with this hammer-wielding octogenarian.

When an intruder entered George Bradford's Detroit duplex through a basement window on Sunday, the spritely 82-year-old fought back using a hammer.

"I knew something...was abnormal about him," he said of the intruder.

Bradford told ABC News' Detroit affiliate WXYZ he just wanted to protect his family, including his mother who is in her 90s and lives in an upstairs unit at the home, his daughter and grandchildren.

Officers found a 33-year-old male suspect bleeding from his head in the living room, a police spokesperson told ABCNews.com.

Police said the suspect, whose name has not been released, was treated for his injuries and arrested for home invasion.
