Norfolk, Va. - Darcy Keys woke up, walked out of his bedroom and then had a gun pointed at his face. Two men had broken into his Campostella home and kept asking him where was the "stuff."

"I don't know what he's talking about, and I tell him I think you've got the wrong house dude because he's asking me 'Where's the money, where do you keep the money?'" Darcy Keys said.

Keys was pinned on the ground for five minutes and the robber pointed a gun at the back of his head. Then the man forced Keys into the bath tub and told him not to move.
Keys wouldn't stay there long and made a bold move.

"I don't want to get executed in my bathtub and I don't know if that's their intentions so I'd rather get shot you know trying to get away," Keys said.

Keys was in the tub for a couple minutes. On the other side of the shower, he heard the two men rummaging through his mom's room.

"I was like now or never, I can't wait," Keys said. "I certainly don't want to see what's gonna happen when they won't find what they're looking for because it's not here."

Keys went down a noisy flight of stairs and went unnoticed. Within seconds, he ran across Wilson Road to a barbershop and called police.

"It's been kind of hard to sleep since it happened," Keys said. "I think I'll be okay after a while."

Unfortunately, Keys didn't get a good look at either of the men and they're still out there.
