Larry Alsup said he’s counting his blessings after surviving the gruesome attack.

“Pretty crazy. I woke up with him looking over me his eyes were solid black,” said Alsup.

Alsup said Armour broke into his home Sunday night and stood over him with a large knife while he slept.

He said when he woke up Armour told him voices in his head told him to kill Alsup.

Armour then began to swing the machete, according to police.

Alsup suffered severe cuts on his left hand and rib cage.

“First I rolled over and he got me in my ribs. Then the next shot he was coming at my neck and I put my hand up and he cut my fingers all the way through,” said Alsup.

Surveillance video showed Alsup running to get away from Armour.

“I am blessed to be alive. I thought I was going to die,” said Alsup.

Alsup managed to make his way to his neighbors home next door where the surveillance cameras captured the attack.

Armour’s run ins with the law date back to 2015. Police arrested him just in September of this year for felony possession of a gun and drugs.

Armour was charged with aggravated assault, criminal attempt of first-degree murder, aggravated burglary and theft, according to court records.
