Man claims he was beaten, robbed at home
A Cape Coral man was pistol-whipped and robbed at gunpoint of cash and prescription drugs in his home Monday evening, he told police.
The victim reported that two black males entered his home in the 700 block of Southeast Sixth Terrace through the garage, and that one of the suspects hit him in the head with a pistol.
The robbery was reported at 8:26 p.m.
The men took $300 cash and prescription drugs worth approximately $400, then fled south on Cultural Park Boulevard in a white four-door Chrysler, the victim told police. He said the last three letters of the license plate were KTF and the trunk was held closed with bungee cord.
The victim was taken to the hospital for lacerations on the top of his head, and a door leading to the victim’s garage was ajar, police reported.
A neighbor told police a white truck had been parked across the street from the victim’s home at about 8:10 p.m., but that they had not seen anyone in or around the truck.
Detectives continue to investigate the incident, reports state.
