BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE 3)-- A man who usually prosecutes crimes became a victim Sunday night, when he was robbed at gunpoint and tied up in his own home.

Investigators say just before midnight,  Assistant Bullitt County Attorney Doug McCann opened his door to help a woman, and suddenly became a victim. 

It happened on Proctor Lane off Highway 44 East, near Shepherdsville, part of the Lazy River neighborhood.

McCann told investigators a woman came to his door and explained to him that her car had broken down near his home and she needed to use the bathroom. He let her in.

With a gun to his head, McCann was ordered to a back bedroom. Officials say the couple took a cord and bound the attorney's hands and feet. They ran off with his wallet, $65 and his handgun. While investigators have no information on a car, McCann does remember what they looked like.

He was able to get untied and call for help. His family was out of town, so coworkers checked on him Monday. He didn't have any serious injuries, but investigators say he's shaken up. 

McCann described them as a white male, 5'10 about 180 pounds with short brown hair, light facial hair and multiple tattoos on his arms but, nothing the attorney could remember specifically. The woman he recalled was about 5'7, 110 to 120 pounds with long dark hair.  

Sheriffs were able to find McCann's phone after it pinged off Highway 245 at the Clermont exit. As they search for the suspects, investigators warn everyone to be careful when it comes to strangers at the door.

The Sheriff's office believes the couple parked away from the home so no one would spot the vehicle or get a description. Anyone with information should call the Bullitt County Sheriff.
