Ex-WWE Star Justin Credible

Burglars Tied Up My Family

Threatened to Kill Them

Exclusive Details

0607-just-incredible-wweFormer WWE star Justin Credible claims he was a victim of a scary home invasion last night when 3 gun-toting criminals threatened to kill his family ... while he slept through the whole thing. 
Credible -- real name Peter Polaco -- tells us he and his wife were sleeping in their home in Waterbury, Connecticut when family members woke them up saying the house had just been robbed.

The ex-Hardcore champ says the bad guys broke a kitchen window to get in the house and quickly made their way to a bedroom upstairs where his brother and nephew were sleeping. 

Polaco says the 3 men tied his brother up with zip ties and told him if one noise was made "they'd be shot."

The 39-year-old wrestler says the criminals then made their way to his parents' bedroom and woke the elderly couple up, tied them up and continually grilled them on where the family kept their safe.

The couple repeatedly told the burglars they didn't have one -- so the 3 men took $5 from his dad's wallet -- jacked his mother's cell phone -- and rushed out of the house.

Credible says the family believes the attack was NOT random because the bad guys kept mentioning his brother by name during the invasion.

A rep for the Waterbury Connecticut Police declined to comment on the case -- since it was part of an "open investigation."

The Truth    

Yeah, I wonder who came up with this story of the invasion and almost blaming his brother....

I'd say he has a few credibility problem and issues...

"On April 28, 2012, Polaco was scheduled to wrestle on Shane Douglas' Extreme Reunion show, but was removed from the card, as well as the building several times after being found “slumped over, passed out asleep” in a chair. He also walked through the crowd intoxicated asking for money. While he begged management to be let back on the show, they denied his request and kicked him out a second time"

Waterbury is a very gritty, industrial city, not at all the "ritzy" Connecticut some may assume. It has the distinction of earning "the worst quality of life of 300 U.S. metropolitan areas by Money Mag in 1992, one of the "10 Worst Places to Live in America" in the 1999 Places Rated Almanac, and also rated as one of the "Worst Places for Businesses and Careers in America" by Forbes Mag in 2008. Sounds like he was targeted because of his "celebrity", but the criminals should have known there would be no real payoff there.
