Story developing…

American entrepreneur Ted Dhanik best known for his role at MySpace and for creating tech ad company Engage:BDR, was involved in a hostile home invasion.

What FACTZ knows:

  1. Dhanik was the victim of a home invasion robbery. He witnessed the intruder coming into his home on the security cameras. Dhanik immediately grabbed his gun as the alarms went off.
  2. Dhanik found a 200-pound-plus man wearing a ski mask roaming around his kitchen. Dhanik grabbed his Glock, placing one bullet in the chamber. He chased the intruder out of his home.
  3. Neighbors called the Los Angeles Police Department. Dhanik tried to detain the home intruder outside but was charged by the man who tried to grab the gun. The round in the chamber fires in the tussle, missing both parties.
  4. The intruder grabbed the gun after scuffling and dry fires at Dhanik. At this point, the gun was not loaded and the magazine clip fell out. The intruder began using the gun like a hammer to Dhanik’s head, causing Dhanik to bleed and become concussed.
  5. The intruder fled the scene. Dhanik also suffered a broken trigger finger in the incident.

FACTZ spoke with Ted Dhanik, who seemed more upset about the 45 minutes it took for the Los Angeles Police to arrive and the 55 minutes it took paramedics to arrive. Dhanik states, “I am lucky to be alive and next time I will not hesitate to shoot anyone on my property.”

UPDATE 09/12/22: FACTZ caught up with Ted Dhanik at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood to get the FULL details of events that death-defying day.


  • Ya “defund the police” bail reform etc is working out so well. Gascon has destroyed this city and slowly turning it into the purge. Everyone needs to fend for themselves nowadays as police can’t be relied upon.

    • Awwww, an incel who doesn’t really pay attention enough to have a debate so you default to troll when its too complicated. “Defund the Police” was a campaign slogan from 2020. No one ever defunded anything Popo related. In fact, they got big budgets under Trump per usual and PER USUAL we figure out big budgets don’t help crime. In fact, crime is soaring AGAIN after all that extra $ YOU & YOUR CANDIDATES YOU SUPPORT (I’m sure you can’t be a troll & not vote too, right?) said is what police needed to bring crime statistics down….but here we are again. Now run off to the next comment section to comment “Democrats waste $$” with a straight face. That’s what all the rest of you insurrectionist conspiracy theorists do. (but cheer Trump for the $3Trillion he gave away so corporations & rich ppl (NOT YOU) don’t pay taxes. You are a dupe for someone bottom line.

  • Who is this guy? Unfortunately never heard of him but: Life isn’t a movie. Please take a gun safety course and don’t show your life off on Instagram.

    • Victim blaming? No what he should have done is put a round between the dude’s eye holes and go back to watching TV. Society as a whole would thank him.

    • 😂😂😂 He helped create the social media you are using right now. Maybe you should get out more.

    • Hope the neighbor who helped their community is……because this rag didn’t think twice of outing who it is. (Or thinking of the OTHER neighbors who will be sus of snitching to cops…. and in 2022 ppl still wonder why ppl don’t talk to cops.

  • Somebody enters my home like this dies. I’m sorry it’s my life or there’s . Because they are going to kill you if you don’t kill them first
