ANDERSON, Ind.– Police are searching for a suspect after a home invasion in Anderson.

Officers were called to the 1500 block of East 30th Street just before noon Tuesday.

A suspect allegedly came to the door of the home and knocked. As soon as the door opened, a suspect punched the victim and entered the house. The suspect then threw the homeowner to the ground in the kitchen, and continued to hit him.

A second suspect entered the home and began ransacking it.

The first suspect kept asking where the money was and allegedly put a gun to the victim’s head and said he would shoot. The two suspects then fled the home and got into a vehicle that was waiting for them. The vehicle is described as a silver Pontiac Vibe, Chevrolet Equinox or similar SUV-type vehicle.

The suspects took cash and a couple of guns. Police said the victim wasn’t sure exactly what guns were stolen.

State police describe the first suspect as a white male wearing black shoes and a red t-shirt. The second suspect is described as a white male wearing all dark clothing, a hat and gloves. He also carried a backpack.

Police said the victim refused medical treatment. He suffered swelling and bruising to his left eye, along with scrapes to the facial area lower back.
