TUCSON, AZ – Home is a place where we’re suppose to feel safe. But a man in Arizona felt anything but safe after he was held at gunpoint in his own house. The whole thing was caught on camera.

Anthony Girox was at home one afternoon when the two men showed up asking if they could do yard work. But the only green these guys wanted wasn’t the lawn. The men distracted Anthony and asked him for a glass of water. When he went to get it, that’s when all hell broke loose.

“I look up, and he’s coming through the gate with a gun. I was caught off guard. He sweeped me up, and he had me in a choke hold, and he was just telling me, ‘Be quiet. I’m gonna shoot you,'” Anthony describes.

The men tried making off with Anthony’s money, cell phone and jewelry. But unfortunately for them, they were busted on Anthony’s home surveillance system. When they saw themselves on his monitors, they made like a tree!

Anthony wasn’t hurt, just a bit shaken up. And two of the three suspects were arrested.

Lucky for Anthony, Big Brother was there to save the day!
