Former "American Idol" winner and country singer Scotty McCreery and his friends were recently robbed at gunpoint in Raleigh, North Carolina, police say.

McCreery, 20, and four others were unharmed in the incident. Police told local news station WRAL that just before 2 a.m. on Monday, May 5, three men armed with guns forced their way into an apartment where the group was staying and stole their wallets and cell phones before taking off.

One of the residents called 911, saying, "We got robbed. They are all freaked out," according to the outlet.

The apartment is located half a mile away from the campus of North Carolina State University, where McCreery is a sophomore. The country singer and "American Idol" season 10 winner is currently on tour and is set to perform in Bakersfield, California on May 9.
