A 22-year-old Brittwood Apartments tenant told Columbus police that he was assaulted Thursday during a home invasion, authorities said.
The attack caused redness to the left side of the man's back, police said.
Officials continue to search for the two black masked men who allegedly invaded the man's home at about 10:15 p.m.
One was described as a muscular 6-foot-2 tall man who wore all black clothing, and the other was described as a skinny 5-foot-7 tall man who was also wearing all black clothing, police said. They were allegedly spotted in an early 1990s model BMW 3 Series convertible that's dark in color, according to a report.
An officer said he was called to Brittwood Apartments at 2444 West Britt David Road Thursday at 10:30 p.m. to investigate the home invasion. The victim told police he was pistol-whipped, punched, held at gunpoint and robbed of $1,558 worth of property.
