(KMOV.com) -- Police are investigating a violent home invasion involving three suspects in a north St. Louis neighborhood. 

Three suspects wearing masks kicked in the front door of a home on the 5400 block of Claxton around 11:50 p.m. Tuesday night. One suspect was reportedly armed with a gun.

Three victims were in the home's basement when they heard the suspects kicking in the front door. Officers say two victims were able to run out a basement door.

A third victim, described as a 52-year-old black male, was attempting to escape through a bedroom window when the suspects spotted him. The suspects struck the victim in the head several times.

According to authorities, the suspects took off with a flat-screen television and a cell phone as they fled the scene.

The injured victim drove himself to a near-by hospital where he was treated and released.

Information into the investigation were not immediately known.
