He was bound with tape and pistol-whipped as the men demanded access to a safe and to his roommate’s valuables. Then, Daron Davis slashed his throat with a box-cutter and left him for dead, says Bucks County first assistant DA Gregg Shore.

“His life ended up being saved by a neighbor who called 911 after he came running out of his house with a tourniquet wrapped around his neck,” Shore said.

After life-saving — then voice-saving — surgery Grimes was able to testify against Davis and two others involved in the robbery.
