CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - A man holding a hammer and claiming to be a traveling meat salesman forced his way into a Clarksville couple's home on Wednesday demanding they hand over money and jewelry.
"I was afraid I he was going to kill me, I'm 83 years old and that's the first time I've ever been threatened with my life," recalled Billy Powell.
Billy and his wife Binky were sitting in their living room when that man knocked on their front door. After Billy told him they weren't interested in buying any meat, the man pushed him aside and pulled out a hammer.
"And he said we will hurt you if you don't do what I say, he said 'I'll kill you,'" Billy adds.
After being forced to hand over $17 in cash, the couple was forced into their bathroom. A few minutes later the two men were gone.
The Powell's said the two men who broke in were white, around 5'10'' wearing jeans and sweatshirts and driving a silver Honda Civic. Anyone with information is asked to call the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.
