One of the suspects was armed with a shotgun and struck the victim on the head with the butt of the gun. The second suspect bound the victim’s hands. The suspects took the victim’s wallet and money and ransacked the room taking several items, including electronics and jewelry. The suspects then fled the scene on foot.
