Shrewsbury Man Describes Home Invasion: 'Scariest Minutes Of My Life'

SHREWSBURY (WBZ-AM) -- Police are investigating a violent home invasion that took place Monday on Lamplighter Drive.

Homeowner Steve Levine said the invasion started with a knock on the door around noon.

When Levine's girlfriend answered it, there were two men asking for Levine by name.

"And they burst in, pinned her down, she screamed," he told WBZ-TV. "I ran, they grabbed me, threw me down, and one of them pinned me to the wall with a knife at my throat, which was really nice."

He said he had no idea who the men were.

"I just don't even understand it," he said. "It's scary, because if it could happen to me, it could happen to anybody."

The assailants took off with Levine's wallet, which he estimated had a few hundred dollars in it.

Police and K-9 units searched the woods around the house for about an hour, looking for a 6-foot-tall black man and a possibly hispanic man with a scruffy beard, but found nothing.

The victims were not injured, but were shaken.

"Without a doubt, the scariest minutes of my life," Levine said.
