INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Oct. 24, 2014)-- A local woman says she lived through a nightmare when someone robbed her as she entered her apartment building.

Rachel Davis was coming home from class when she noticed someone walking closely to her as she entered her building at the Carlton Apartments on the northwest side of Indianapolis. She says she held the door for the man thinking he was a visitor. She says the man grabbed her arm and pulled out a gun.

According to a police report he got away with her phone, iPod and forced her to give up her debit card pin number. She said her account was wiped out before she could cancel the card. Police say this is a reminder to be aware of your surroundings and watch out for your neighbors. Rachel wants others to be aware and protect themselves.

"I know if it didn't happen to me it would've happened to somebody else and they might not have had the courage to talk about it and stand up and I don't want it to happen to anyone else."

Police said Rachel did the right thing by obeying the robbers orders and calling police immediately.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) is investigating. They’ll take a look at ATM surveillance video and try to track down that cell phone. The apartment complex did not want to comment. Rachel has put in her notice to move and has this message for the robber.

"I'm not gonna sit back and let you take what you did from me. I'm going to make sure you pay for it and you are arrested and put in jail. I'm not afraid of you."
