GRAHAM, N.C. — A father in Graham says he came home from the grocery store to find two men with a gun in his living room Wednesday morning.
“He put the gun in my head,” said the father, who wanted to remain anonymous.
He says the men threw him to the ground, assaulted him and then threatened to shoot him if he didn’t hand over cash and his car keys.
“I was really scared, because I don’t know what they were thinking. Maybe he’ll kill me,” said the man.
He did what they asked, then the men took his XBox and left in a car parked at a nearby vacant house.
“I think these people thought he was gone for the day. Then as fate would have it, he showed up at home — and lucky him,” said Cpt. Steve McGilvray, with the Graham Police Department.
McGilvray says the father did the right thing.
