Police in Fayetteville are investigating a home invasion. It happened late Tuesday morning in the Well's Place community off of Raeford Road.

William Gibson told ABC11 he was at home with his nephew when the suspect knocked at the door. The suspect told Gibson he was recruiting employees for the Murphy Oil company.

When Gibson went to get a pad to right down some information, the suspect forced his way into the house and pulled out a hand gun.

"He came in the door like, 'Oh by the way," said Gibson. "He pulled the gun out and pointed it right at me. The clip wasn't in the gun yet, but I didn't want to take any chances. A bullet could have still been in the chamber. He pointed the gun at me. He said, 'get on the ground.' I got on the ground and that's when he put the clip in the gun. He cocked it and put it right to the back of my head."

The suspect then cuffed Gibson's hands. However, he managed to break free and escape. Both he and his nephew are OK.

Police are telling residents to be on extra alert. They are asking anyone with information about this incident to give them a call.
