Masked men enter home, strike man in head with a blunt object

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

A London man was seriously injured Saturday after two masked men reportedly entered his home and beat him in the head with a blunt object, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The attack happened about 6:30 a.m. at a home along Brannon Mill Road, located eight miles southeast of London.

The men entered the home and struck the victim several times before they robbed money from his wallet and took his 1998 gray-blue Mustang.

The victim was taken to Saint Joseph-London hospital by a private vehicle. The hospital called 911 and deputies were sent to the hospital to interview the victim as well as to his home.

Detective Daryl  Zanet continues the investigation and is following leads and seeking possible suspects.

Deputies assisting on the case included Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore, Sgt. Josh Gaylor, deputies William Bo Harris and John Inman, and detectives Charlie Loomis and Tommy Johnston. Also assisting was Kentucky State Police Trooper Jack Riley.
