A Reisterstown man was hospitalized early Sunday morning for head injuries sustained during a home invasion robbery.
Four to five suspects wearing ski masks broke into a home in the 1400 block of Nicodemus Road in Reisterstown and tied up the 52-year-old man who was home.
“He was hit in the head several times with the butt of the gun one of the suspects had,” said Lt. Stephen Doarnberger, assistant commander of the .
The suspects broke into the home around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, tied up the man, ransacked the house and stole one handgun, five shotguns, three rifles and two computers. The ordeal last until almost 5 a.m.
“We hate it when we have guns taken in a crime,” Doarnberger said. “It just means there’s more of them on the street.”
The investigation is more urgent when weapons are stolen, and police are looking into whether or not the home was targeted for weapons, Doarnberger said.
