A man is recovering in hospital after being confined and assaulted in his home.
It happened at a rural residence east of Leduc near Range Road 241 and Township Road 495 Tuesday morning.
RCMP say an elderly man was trapped and beaten by three people, two men and a woman. Despite his injuries, he was able to escape and flag someone down for a ride to the RCMP detachment. From there he was transported to hospital.
Three firearms and some personal items were taken from the home.
Police describe one of the men as around 5’8″, and 150 pounds. It’s believed he was wearing a grey hoodie at the time of the attack. If you know anything, or saw anything happen in the area between 6 and 11am Jan. 10, you’re asked to contact RCMP or crimestoppers. (kdr)
