PHOENIX - A paraplegic man is in the hospital after police say he was hit with a brick during a home invasion.
Phoenix police say the break-in happened Monday night around 11:30 p.m. near 87th Avenue and Camelback Road.
The owner of the home didn't want to be identified, but he says six men broke into his home armed with guns.
Once inside they yelled at everyone to get down, but singled out the wheelchair bound man and started hitting him. When officers arrived they found the 38-year-old victim bleeding from the head. The man was transferred to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
According to Phoenix police spokesperson James Holmes, the suspects held the victims at gunpoint and demanded money and jewelry from them.
The owner of the home says the men broke in by throwing a brick through the back window.
The home-owner says the attackers were only inside his home for about three minutes. As they were leaving though, a neighbor on a bicycle spotted the car and called police.
Glendale police then identified the car and took four men inside into custody.
Authorities arrested, 25-year-old Migel Tarin, 26-year-old Rueben Tarin, 25-year-old Francisco Aguilera and 20-year-old Anthony Arenas.
All men have been booked into jail for robbery and aggravated assault charges.
The paraplegic man is expected to survive. In total six people were inside the home, including three adults and three children ages 12, 9, and 8.
