An Air Force Special Operations veteran found himself fighting for his life in the last place he would have thought: his own living room.

Two men broke into Frankie Robinson's house before he arrived home after work early Sunday morning. As soon as Robinson got into his house, the two men jumped him. He said if it were not for his military training, he would probably be dead.

"I came home here and my door was cracked," Robinson recalled. "I just kind of pushed it open and walked through and I stood here and I could see shadows and I came around the corner and right when I reached right here is when they rushed me."

The blood splatter was still all over his carpet, on the white walls and the back doorknob. He pointed out the stains as evidence of a brutal attack that put him in the emergency room with multiple deep cuts. Doctors had to cauterize the stab wounds and closed them up with 17 staples and a dozen stitches.

"The guy grabbed me from behind and that's when he went to cut me and I stuck this arm up and I was able to push him off and block this one," said Robinson. "I thought I was dead. I thought I was really going to die. If it wasn't for the military, there's no way I would have survived this."

Luckily he was able to fight the two thieves off and survive. Robinson and his pregnant wife had recently moved into the house. It was the last place he thought he would end up fighting for his life.

"I've never been scared for my life like this, ever," he said. "To this point where I mean I thought I was going to die and all I could think about was my unborn child that's not even here yet."

The thieves got away with a 55 inch TV, blue ray DVD player and a digital camera. Police told Robinson the suspects most likely scoped the house out prior to the attack. The suspects were described as two large black men wearing black pants and white shirts.
