Security footage (below) captured the terrifying moment a 21-year-old woman was attacked in her home.
Katie Oâ€™Connor, of Overly Park, Kansas, said she invited a friend to her apartment on May 12 to look at some carpentry tools she was selling, reports KCTV.
â€śI told her I was trying to sell them, and she was like, 'Oh, I might know a couple of guys looking to open their own business,'" she said. When they arrived, Oâ€™Connor quickly realized the men were there to rob her.
In the security footage, the woman, whom Oâ€™Connor considered to be a friend â€” the two often having conversations about their children and school plans â€” was seen pacing around the apartment while the two men appear to attack her and attempt to steal from her. One of the men placed her in a chokehold, she says.
â€śAs soon as he put his arm around my neck, I was like, 'oh (expletive),Â this is really happening. This is really going on,â€ť she said. The men ultimately stole money that Oâ€™Connor set aside for college tuition, the carpentry tools and a safe. What was left, were hidden cameras she had purchased a few months ago, after she hired a new nanny, reports LiveLeak.
â€śI have nanny cams from March because I had a nanny I was kind of worried about. It goes to my phone. I can watch it live, and it records, and I can watch it on any computer ... my phone as long as I have Wi-Fi," Oâ€™Connor said. â€śI just feel dumb for letting them in my house."
Police are investigating the invasion, and attempting to identify the thieves.
