Deputies in Flagler County say a disabled man was slightly injured and his home ransacked late Thursday night during a home invasion robbery on Espanola Road in Bunnell.
The 60-year-old man, who is wheelchair bound, told deputies that shortly before 11 p.m., four men described as black and 20 to 29 years old, wearing dark clothing and armed with an aluminum bat, entered his home, threw him on the floor and began kicking and poking him in the head with the metal bat.
The man said that during the incident, one of the men stepped on his left foot, causing minor bleeding.
Deputies said the man told the robbers where he kept his medications, thinking that they were
looking for drugs. The man told deputies none of his medications was missing.
The robbers did steal three shotguns and the man's wallet that had been in his bedroom, deputies said. The firearms are not operational, according to the victim.
The man told deputies that after the robbers left his home, he pulled himself back into his wheelchair and then called the Flagler County Sheriff's Office. Deputies checked the immediate area of the home but were unable to locate the robbers.
The man was treated at the scene for the injury to his foot and for shortness of breath. He refused transport to the hospital.
Detectives are asking anyone with information on the home invasion robbery to contact their offices at 386-586-4801 or call Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and could be
eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
