A 91-year-old actor known for his role on "Boy Meets World" foiled an attempted burglary at his home in the San Fernando Valley.

LOS ANGELES -- A 91-year-old actor known for his role on the popular TV series 'Boy Meets World' foiled an attempted burglary at his Los Angeles home, authorities said.

William Daniels, who portrayed the teacher George Feeny on the 1990s show, was at his house with his 89-year-old wife, Bonnie Bartlett, Saturday evening when the incident began.

Shortly before 9:30 p.m., the would-be intruder forced open a back door, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Tuesday.

Daniels quickly reacted, turning on lights in the house.

"Luckily, Mr. Daniels was able to frighten away the person and the LAPD quickly responded," the actor's publicist said in a statement to our sister station KABC. "They are both well. Mr. Daniels thanks all his fans for their concern."

LAPD investigators do not believe the couple was targeted.

A description of the suspect was not available.

Daniels is also known for his role of Dr. Mark Craig on 'St. Elsewhere' and voicing KITT on 'Knightrider.'
