A man and woman were beaten by three home intruders late Friday at Greenleaf Apartments in Phenix City, authorities said.
He was treated at the Columbus Midtown Medical Center, but there is no information at this time about the extent of his injuries. It’s unclear whether the woman also received medical attention.
Phenix City Police Capt. George Staudinger said the man was home alone around 11:30 p.m. Friday when someone knocked on his door at 1701 37th St. After he answered the door, three men barged in the apartment and attacked him without weapons.
A woman arrived at the home during the incident, startling the suspects. They beat her before running away with her cellphone and items stolen from the home, according to police.
“Maybe it could have possibly been worse had she not come over,” Staudinger said.
No arrests have been made in the case as of Tuesday afternoon. Authorities have also not released any additional information about the case.
