American Idol winner Scotty McCreery went through an extremely scary ordeal that he won’t soon forget. The famed country singer was one of the victims of an armed robbery that happened Monday morning at a home in Raleigh, North Carolina, but “luckily, my friends and I are safe,” McCreery said on Facebook.
According to the Raleigh Police Department, the home invasion took place before 2 a.m. near North Carolina State University’s campus. Three armed suspects entered the property and took money, wallets and electronics from multiple victims before leaving, police said. None of the victims was injured.
“It was definitely a very scary night,” the 20-year-old shared. “Luckily, my friends and I are safe and the Raleigh PD is on the case. I will share more when the time is right, but as of now we do not want to do or say anything that could hinder the investigation. Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support. A huge thank you to the Raleigh PD for their quick response and hard work in solving this case.”
