Whoever robbed "Dancing With the Stars" celebrity contestant Brant Daugherty at gunpoint last week got quite a surprise after making off with the actor's bag.

"He said 'I'm going to cock the gun and I'm going to shoot you if you don't give me your bag,'" Daugherty recounted on Monday's episode of "DWTS." "I had two bags with me. One of them had a T-shirt and my Latin dance shoes, so that was the bag I gave him. So the funniest part to me is he committed a felony for my dance shoes."

Daugherty, 28, said the man approached him outside his Los Angeles apartment building right after he finished filming last week's episode of the competitive reality dancing show, according to Access Hollywood.

It was just the cherry on top of a terrible week for Daugherty, who is best known from the ABC Family drama "Pretty Little Liars." The actor also sprained a ligament during one of his rigorous dance rehearsals.

"I hurt my foot somehow, I lost my phone, and then I was robbed at gunpoint," he said. "It got my head out of the ["DWTS"] game; it was a distraction and I was really trying to focus but it was an overwhelming time."

Despite the hardships, Daugherty and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd wowed the judges Monday with their old-time Hollywood quickstep, scoring a 27 out of 30 — the highest score of the night.

Bill Nye the Science Guy, who danced despite a torn quad muscle, was ultimately eliminated during Monday's show.

Daugherty has also had recurring roles on "Army Wives" and "Days of Our Lives."
