VERMILION COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — A Danville man pleaded guilty after being arrested for beating an elderly veteran in 2016.

Police say 21-year old Tyren Wilson broke into the apartment of 86-year old John Golden. Golden says Wilson pistol-whipped him about the face and head and held him hostage.

Monday, Wilson pleaded guilty to home invasion. He’s scheduled to be sentenced in October.

Golden’s family says the outcome is surreal, but it feels good to have some closure.
