A Tacoma man was pistol-whipped multiple times Thursday during a home invasion robbery.
The 55-year-old homeowner was sleeping about 7:40 a.m. when he heard somebody break into his house in the 3500 block of S. Monroe Street.
Two armed men busted into his bedroom and repeatedly hit him in the head with a revolver, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.
The suspects ransacked the house and escaped with money, jewelry and a cell phone. The victim called police about 9:45 a.m. to report the assault. He told officers he wasn’t immediately able to call 911 because he wasn’t able to move and the robbers had threatened to kill him if he did.
Both suspects were described as white, in their 40s, about 6 feet with a medium build.
