On his Facebook page, McCreery said,"Yes, it was definitely a very scary night. 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."
The Raleigh Police Department in its report stated that the home invasion took place at around 2 am near North Carolina State University's campus, where three armed suspects entered the property and took money, wallets and electronics from multiple victims before leaving, police said.
