Homeowner hit in the head with pistol during assault

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Craighead County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a home invasion and assault.

According to the incident report, two suspects kicked in a door on County Road 936 on Monday around noon.

The homeowner was sleeping on the couch when one suspect woke him up by hitting him over the head with a pistol and demanding he give the suspect his knife.

A female in the house also woke up to the disturbance. The two suspects dumped out her purse and took her phone, the report said.

The two victims told deputies they left the house and got into their vehicle to get away from the intruders.

The suspects reportedly stole a red luggage bag, Samsung Tablet, jewelry, medications and a pocketknife.

The homeowner told police the suspects left in a red or maroon Monte Carlo with a woman driving the car.

He could not make out the whole license plate for the deputies.
