WOOD RIVER (KMOV.com) -

An elderly man who was robbed at knife-point in Wood River says he feels like a prisoner in his own home.

Paul Lamar, 74, says he is afraid to leave his own home and has had his sense of security stolen. Danielle Holmes, 42, allegedly broke into Lamar’s home and forced him down with a knife.

“She ran into the kitchen and grabbed two steak knives. She came back and yelled ‘get on your knees!” said Lamar. “She’s a big woman, over 200 pounds and my back is killing me from her knees and the whole weight.”

Holmes is accused of taking money from Lamar before fleeing. Lamar said Holmes used to come over to his house and perform massages.

Danielle Holmes is charged with armed robbery and home invasion. She is being held on a $250,000 bond.
