When Danny Justice answered a knock on his front door Saturday night, nothing could have prepared him for what was on the other side.
A man with a black metal baseball bat began beating Danny in front of three of his children, and his young niece and nephew.
His wife, Emily Justice says, "I heard all the kids scream and I ran out here. You know, he was on the floor, there was a puddle of blood under his head, and I said, 'Oh my God, have you been shot?'"
The attacker hit Danny three times: Once on his hand, on his arm, and one savage blow to the head.
"When I got hit, I guess it dazed me. And the next thing I know, I'm picking myself up off the ground, and I see blood all over the floor," recalls Danny.
The children were able to get a good look at the suspect. They say he's a black male, between 5'11 and 6 feet. He was wearing a blue shirt, blue jeans, and brown sneakers. They weren't able to see his face because he wrapped something white-like a towel or a sheet- around his head.
After filing a police report, the Justices were told that police had spotted a man who matched the description. They chased him, but the man got away when police heard nearby gunshots and went to investigate.
The Justices have lived in their home for nearly seven months. This is the first time they have ever felt unsafe there. Emily Justice says, "I'm a little worried he could come back."
Until the suspect is behind bars, the Justice family says they, along with their neighbors, will take extra precautions before opening any more doors.
