A man was hit in the head with a bat during an overnight home invasion in Central Phoenix.

The incident happened shortly after midnight on Wednesday in the area of 7th Street and Thomas Road.

Phoenix police say they responded to an assault call of a man who was struck with a bat. Once on scene, a man and woman told police two men armed with a bat and a gun kicked in the door of their apartment and assaulted the man. The two suspects then took the male victim’s wallet and left the scene.

It is unclear if the victims knew the suspects or if this was a random attack.

Initially, very limited suspect information was available other than the suspects were thought to be males in their 20s to 30s.
