This is a scary story for anyone. Raiders offensive lineman Donald Penn had to fight off a home invasion recently, and luckily because of his size he was able to fight the guy and hold him down until police came.



A frightening moment for Oakland Raiders lineman Donald Penn — who fought off a home intruder who kicked in his front door and threatened his family earlier this month … TMZ Sports has learned.

According to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Penn — who’s 6’4″, 340 lbs. and a former Pro Bowler — was at his L.A. home with his wife and kids when a large man hopped over his security gate, busted in his front door and began going crazy inside the home.

That’s when Penn — who was with his wife and 2 young children at the time — sprung into action … physically restraining the man (who’s 6’1″, 220 lbs.) … until cops showed up.

Sources tell us … Penn is adamant he has no connection to the man — and doesn’t know why he was targeted.

Penn eventually filed for a restraining order against the guy, which was granted — and now the suspect has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Penn and his family.

The case is scheduled to go before a judge later this month — when Penn will ask for a more permanent protection order.
