Rochester Man Pistol Whipped During Home Invasion
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Rochester police officers were called to a residence at the Oak Terrace Estates mobile home park along Marion Road Wednesday night to check a report of a violent home invasion.
A 19 year old man who lives at the residence says he was home with three friends when a group of four masked men with guns barged in around 10:30. He says one of the men pointed a gun at his head and cocked the weapon before he was pistol whipped. A male friend was also hit with a pistol and one of the female friends was slapped across the face.
Captain John Sherwin says the intruders took video games and some other property from the victim and also robbed his friends before they left. The total loss was put at around $1,000.
Sherwin says investigators are working on some leads but at last check, no arrests had been made.
