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.
