Port Arthur man assaulted during home invasion


A 64-year-old man was assaulted during a home invasion in Port Arthur Monday night.

Around 11:30 p.m. officers were called to a house located at 927 8th Street where the home invasion had just happened. A police spokesperson said the victim had several injuries.

The victim said a man knocked at his front door. When he went to answer, at least two men forced their way in and assaulted him.

Several items were taken from the house and the robbers ran away.

The robbers have only been described as two black males.

The victim was taken to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth in Beaumont for treatment of what officers say are believed to be non life-threatening injuries.

The incident remains under investigation.
