State Police are looking for two men, and possibly others, in connection with a weekend home invasion in Clay Township.
Trooper Dan Kesten said the incident happened about 6 a.m. Saturday morning at a residence on Euclid Road.
“Two white males knocked on the door. An older resident opened the door and they rushed him,” Kesten said in an interview Monday morning.
According to Trooper Kesten, the suspects held the elderly man at knifepoint and gunpoint and then beat him up, at times pistol-whipping him. They forced him to open a safe and stole from him.
“They beat him pretty badly,” he said.
Trooper Kesten said the victim was inside his home badly injured for 12 hours until he was found by family members. He was then flown to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh for treatment.
Police have not yet made any arrests.
“If anyone has any leads, we’d appreciate a call,” he said.
It’s believed the suspects are in their 20s.
Police say they also don’t know if the invasion was targeted or random.
