A 61-year-old man was hurt when he tried to help a woman attacked by several men who broke into her home.
Clinton Police said a 20-year-old woman told them four or five armed men broke into her McKinley Street home and put a gun to her head.
Police said when he heard the disturbance, the 61-year-old man armed himself and tried to help the woman.
“He was subsequently assaulted and his handgun was taken,” said a spokesman for the Clinton Police Department.
The injured man was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries he suffered during the attack.
The intruders fled, and police did not indicate any of them had been caught yet.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Clinton Police at (563) 243-1458 or Clinton County Crime Stoppers at 888-883-8015.
