Detectives believe one or both of the assailants, men in their 20s, hit the victim’s head with a handgun before running away. One was wearing a red hoodie with black shorts, the other was wearing a blue hoodie with long pants, and both had masks on, according to the USPIS.
Surveillance video from a doorbell camera at a home in Walden Circle shows the two men walking and was shared as authorities seek information from the public.
