A model returned to her residence in Ireland to find several masked intruders, who she claims doused her in bleach, threatened her with weapons and locked her in a bathroom for nearly a day.
Eve Ryan would later recall that she was held at knife and screwdriver-point, demanding to know where she kept her valuables.
At one point, she was dragged into a bathroom by her hair and was covered in bleach.
At the time of the burglary, Ryan’s grandmother -who has dementia- was in the house, though the bandits apparently did not give her the same rough-housing.
Ryan reportedly instructed her grandmother to call emergency services by writing a message with mascara and slipping it under the door, but it was her aunt who eventually raised the alarm when she came to the home and heard screaming.
According to the Daily Mail, a neighbor helped bust the door down, prompting the thieves to make a run for it.
Police were eventually called to the scene, and Ryan referred to the rescue as a milestone event.
“It was the best moment of my life,” she said. “I’m so thankful they never went near my granny and didn’t hurt my dogs.”
Ryan was shocked to learn that having a security camera suite does not stop intruders, and it is unknown what defensive precautions she will take in the future.
