No, this is isn't a Pretty Little Liars plotline. Actor Brant Daugherty came face to face with a robber after taping Dancing With the Stars on Monday, Sept. 23. The TV star, 28, was approached by a man with a gun outside his apartment complex in California.

"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," Daughterty tells People.

Daugherty was forced to fork over a pair of workout pants, two T-shirts, a toothbrush and his cell phone. The mugger also made off with a pair of Latin dance shoes. "I would love to see the look on his face when he opened the bag up, expecting I don't know what, jewels and riches," he jokes to Access Hollywood.

Petra Murgatroyd's partner filed a police report, though cops have yet to track down the criminal. In the meantime, Daugherty is trying to maintain a sense of humor. "Somewhere out there there's a dancing thief with great teeth," he tells People. "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."
