Pretty Little Liars
star Brant Daugherty, 28, a contestant on the current season of Dancing with the Stars
, was mugged at gunpoint directly following a taping of the hit ABC show, and is now revealing more about the scary incident to People.
"After the show I got dropped off and was walking up to my apartment building and a man followed me up with a gun and told me to give him my stuff," he explained to People backstage at DWTS Monday. "It was a complete random occurrence of events and it led up to one of the worst nights of my life – after having such a great night last week on the dance floor."
The mugger eventually made off with a pair of workout pants, two T-shirts, dance shoes, a toothbrush and his cell phone.
"Somewhere out there there's a dancing thief with great teeth," he joked. "We like to joke that we changed his life. When he got my dance shoes he swore away his life of crime and he's going to start doing the salsa now."
But on a serious note, the scary incident did leave the handsome actor shaken up.
"You don't really know how to react to something like that," he said. "You're laughing one minute, then you kind of get a little overwhelmed and start crying. Then you're laughing again."
