LANCASTER – A man checking on his brother’s home Friday afternoon was confronted by three intruders who pistol whipped the man, robbed him and then took off, according to family members.
The incident happened around 2:18 p.m. in the 44900 Block of Logue Avenue, said Lancaster Station Watch Commander Lt. Carter
“When he enters the home, be believes there were three males inside the house,” said Carter. “He was pushed to the ground at gunpoint and threatened that he was going to be killed if he moved.”
The victim told family members one of the men held a gun to his head and then pistol whipped him in the face, a female relative said.
The man had a large swollen bruise on his right cheek bone and eye.
The house was ransacked, and the intruders stole the man’s wallet and other items from the home before escaping on foot, Lt. Carter said.
“So it was a burglary that escalated into a robbery,” he said.
