Lexington Man Recalls Home Invasion, Gun To Head

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) "I was down with my head and the guy was standing there with that gun right there so I was like.... I prayed to God that if I do what they tell me to that they won't shoot me. That's all I prayed for."

That was Leon Cummins describing what took place at his cousin's home on Arbor Station Way around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon. Cummins says a young black man rang the doorbell, and when Cummins answered the door, that's when the home invasion started. 

"He asked for a house member here, if he was at home, and I just cracked the door to tell him that he was at the shop, and that's when he and two other black males busted in with guns drawn," Cummins told LEX 18.

Cummins says the home invaders held him in the living room as they ransacked the house, taking all the money and jewelry they could find. Cummins says although the invasion lasted roughly five minutes, he was paralyzed with fear. 

"I figured they were going to... Get what they wanted and shoot me or get mad because we didn't have what they wanted and shoot me." 

But Cummins says once they had what they wanted, they took off toward Woodhill Drive. Two of the three home invaders were eventually caught by Lexington Police: 19-year0old Daquis Sharp and 20-year-old Stephan Fisher. Sharp and Fisher are charged with Robbery, fleeing and evading, trafficking in a controlled substance and trafficking marijuana. The third home invader is still at large. Although Cummin's cousin wasn't at home, Arlene Hill, the homeowner and cousin of Cummins, says she's stunned over what happened Tuesday. 

"I feel really upset about it, because I work too hard for somebody else's children to come in here and rob me. And I feel like everyone needs to have a gun in their home to stop things like this," Hill told LEX 18. "I pray and thank God that they didn't hurt Leon or hurt my son if he'd been here."
