Fayette County deputies are looking for two men they said beat a man during a home invasion in Hilltop Tuesday afternoon.
The 58-year-old victim told deputies two men knocked out a window and crawled into his Prudence Road home while he was sleeping. He then said the men beat him in the head with an electric heater they found inside of the home.
The suspects were allegedly looking for drugs, but deputies said they only got away with a pistol.
The victim could not give investigators a description because the men were wearing masks.
Anyone with information on the home invasion should call Fayette County deputies at 304-574-1610 or Crime Stoppers at 304-255-7867.
