Country singer and former American Idol winner Scotty McCreery kicked off his week by getting robbed. Scotty, who is also a student at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, was held up by gunmen at an apartment in Raleigh Monday morning.

According to WRAL-TV, the scary moment went down when he was reportedly visiting with friends at an apartment and three men broke in, holding him and four others up. There are conflicting reports as to whether the apartment was his apartment, or a friend's. But really, does it matter?

Police say the incident occurred around 2AM. The men allegedly forced their way inside the apartment and took wallets and phone. They did not hurt anyone.

In a 911 call released by police, one of the people in the apartment told an operator, "they took everything we have...They were like 'Get down. Get on the floor and give us everything you got.'" The caller said the robbers told all of them to count down from 100 before they got up.

"All you heard was yelling like 'Who are you? What are you doing here? ' for a good five minutes," one neighbor told the local news station. "It was just yelling."

Scotty just finished his second year at NC State. The robbery happened after he got back from a long trip and after finals too. Perhaps he was targeted?

Scary stuff. According to his website, Scotty will resume touring on Friday in Bakersfield, Calif.
