The 13-year-old was alone in his home after school when he said he was suddenly dragged across the room to the front door and thrown into the street.
He ran to a neighbour’s house and sobbed: “I’ve been attacked by a ghost!’’
His mother Beverley, who was collecting her five-year-old son Ethan from school, returned to find a trembling Daniel outside her front door. It had been locked from the inside.
She has now called in her local priest to drive the demon out of their house in Hartlepool, Teesside.
Single mum Beverley, 33, said: “I know it sounds mad but there is no other explanation. Daniel hasn’t done it to himself.
“He said he was sitting on the sofa listening to music when he suddenly felt someone grab him and pick him up. His feet came off the floor, then someone started pushing him towards the living-room door.
“Whatever it was then tried to push him into the kitchen. He said the front door flew open and he was grabbed by the arms and pushed into the street. He did not see anyone but whoever it was sounded like a man because of the heavy breathing.’’
The family cautiously went back into their home but turned and fled after hearing banging upstairs and the sound of someone walking around. They dashed to St Paul’s Church and told parish priest Father Richard Masshedar what had happened.
Fr Masshedar has visited the family to offer support. They want him to drive out the demon just like the priest in 1973 hit horror movie The Exorcist.
He said: “I went to see the family to offer prayers. We take it one step at a time and the first step was for me to visit the family with a church warden.’’
A neighbour said: “I’d like to say it’s all hogwash but it seems real enough to me. We are all scared to death in case whatever it is decides to move in with us.’’
