Elderly Man Recuperating After Home Invasion

An elderly man is back home after deputies say two men broke into his home and beat him up.

Duplin County deputies say the 80-year-old man was severely beaten up in the July 7th attack at his home on Highway 50, just south of Kenansville.

Two men kicked in the front door, beat him and took his wallet and cell phone. The man was first taken to a local hospital and then to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville for treatment.

Deputies say they have no good description of the attackers since it was dark when it happened and are hoping someone with information will come forward.
