Man Pistol Whipped In Bloomington Home Invasion

Bloomington Police Department

Bloomington police say three armed robbers invaded a home on the southeast side of town Wednesday evening.

Officers say the victims told investigators the robbers wore masks and had guns.

One struck a resident in the head with a pistol as they followed the two men inside the residence on Oxford Court.

There were only minor injuries during the stickup about 10:30 p.m.

Investigators say the robbers made off with various items from the residence. Police are asking the public for help with information about the crime.
