SPOKANE -- A Gonzaga University law student is stunned after he was robbed by people he was trying to befriend.


Zac Gorrill lives in a neighborhood near the Gonzaga University campus.  He says he was sitting by his basement apartment

window when someone came by and struck up a conversation.  Gorrill, who was trying to make friends, invited the stranger in.
 

The two ended up hanging out for a few hours.  Then the stranger asked Gorrill if he could invite a few more friends over.
 

Gorrill says three men and two women came over for drinks and listened to music.  A few hours later, Gorrill went to the bathroom. 

When he came out, he saw two of the men stealing his stuff.
 

"He was kneeling and unplugging the wires out of my computer.  The other guy was grabbing my bike," said Gorrill.  He says one of

the men grabbed his own pocket knife that was sitting on the shelf, pointed it at him and said they were leaving.
 

The robbers got away with a laptop, bike, wallet, MP3 player and a digital camera.
 

"Last night, I couldn't sleep.  Every knock at the door or car door woke me up.  I'm feeling violated and frightened," said Gorrill.
 

Gorrill also says he made a mistake letting people into his home he hardly knows.  But it being his first semester at Gonzaga Law,

he says he was just trying to make friends.
 

Spokane police are investigating.  No suspects have been named.
