The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a violent home invasion in Arizona City. 

According to PCSO, deputies were called to a home Monday night near Heather Drive and Del Rio Road after three suspects forced their way into a home and demanded drugs and money.

A 46-year-old man was injured during the incident after he was hit with the butt of a handgun.

PSCO says they believe the victims weren’t the intended targets and that the suspects accidentally broke into the wrong home.

"It was too dark to make anybody out—but I saw four people," eyewitness Michael Thomas said. "They ran around the corner. I didn't hear anything for a couple of seconds but then a car peeled out."

The three suspects are described as being three black males. One man is six-foot and has a thin build. The other two suspects are average height and medium build. At least one of the men had a handgun at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspects’ whereabouts is urged to call the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office at 520-866-5111.
