Man assaulted in his apartment by intruder

A 68-year-old man was assaulted around 4:30 p.m. Monday when he returned to his apartment on 3000 S. Walnut St., Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Joe Crider said.

The man entered his apartment to see an individual exit from his bathroom. This intruder then stuck the victim on the head, knocking him unconscious, Crider said.

When the man came to consciousness at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday, he noticed his wallet, including his ID, MasterCard and an undisclosed amount of cash, was taken.

BPD officers noted a contusion and a small laceration to the victim’s face during his report Tuesday.

The case is active and has been forwarded to detectives, but little was known about a suspect description as of Wednesday morning, Crider said.
