NORTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Authorities said two suspects are on the loose after beating an elderly man during a home invasion in north St. Louis.

Police said the suspects knocked the door of a home in 5700 block of Henner around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday. Authorities said the culprits asked for a woman the homeowner did not know. The men left but returned 10 minutes later, one was wearing a mask while the other was carrying a gun.

The suspects then got into a struggle with the man before one of the suspects hit the victim in the head with an object.

Police said the suspects then ran out of the back of the man's home and may have left the scene in a red vehicle.

A neighbor told News 4 the street is usually quiet and not known for crime.
