MIDWAY, AR (KAIT) –  Three people are in the Baxter County Detention Center after police say they burst into a man's home then beat and robbed him.

On Wednesday deputies were called to a home at the Midway Oaks Trailer Park.  The caller said two men broke in the door, shoved a three-year-old child aside then began beating the victim in the head and face.

When the victim's roommate came into the room, deputies say the suspects fled in a gray Jeep Cherokee.  A few minutes later someone called 911 reporting two men were seen crawling into a home at the Cedar Hills Mobile Home.  Deputies went to the home and found a man and woman.  According to the report, the couple claimed they were the only ones in the residence.  Deputies, however, found another man hiding beneath a bed.

A search of the home apparently turned up a cell phone belonging to the victim as well as drug paraphernalia, syringes, suspected K2, marijuana and suspected heroin.  All three suspects were taken into custody.
