EX-WWE STAR JUSTIN CREDIBLE
BURGLARS TIED UP MY FAMILY
Threatened to Kill Them
Former WWE star Justin Credible claims he was a victim of a scary home invasion last night when 3 gun-toting criminals threatened to kill his family ... while he slept through the whole thing.
Credible -- real name Peter Polaco -- tells us he and his wife were sleeping in their home in Waterbury, Connecticut when family members woke them up saying the house had just been robbed.
The ex-Hardcore champ says the bad guys broke a kitchen window to get in the house and quickly made their way to a bedroom upstairs where his brother and nephew were sleeping.
Polaco says the 3 men tied his brother up with zip ties and told him if one noise was made "they'd be shot."
The 39-year-old wrestler says the criminals then made their way to his parents' bedroom and woke the elderly couple up, tied them up and continually grilled them on where the family kept their safe.
The couple repeatedly told the burglars they didn't have one -- so the 3 men took $5 from his dad's wallet -- jacked his mother's cell phone -- and rushed out of the house.
Credible says the family believes the attack was NOT random because the bad guys kept mentioning his brother by name during the invasion.
A rep for the Waterbury Connecticut Police declined to comment on the case -- since it was part of an "open investigation."
ORIGINAL: Former WWE wrestler Justin Credible stated on Twitter late Wednesday evening that his parents tied up and robbed at gunpoint after someone broke into their house.
He wrote, "This is not a joke. 3 masked guys with guns broke into my parents house through the kitchen window. They tied my folks up and my brother too .. They had guns pointed. At them. They checked the downstair door where me and my wife stay, but it was locked. They took some jewelry .. But they never got to us. I’ve never felt so violated and helpless. They even pointed a gun and threaten to shoot my brothers son who never .. Woke to see what happened thank god. Wow I’m blown away. So many emotions. I never thought this could happen to me .. So many cops where here, none of them did anything that was helpful .. Scary thing is they knew who the family was. Crazy who would do such a thing. Thats why I gotta be careful on who I let into my life .. Sorry guys I had to vent to somebody. I just wish I could have done something. I thought this sh#t only happened in movies."
