Two men, a 53-year old and a 23-year old, father and son, were taken to the hospital after their home on Old Israel Road was broken into by two men who knocked the residents unconscious.
The incident happened around 4:30 am Monday morning.
Another resident heard the commotion and got up to check on the noise, according to Tumwater Police Seargent Jenn Kolb. “She observed the two suspects in the garage, and one was holding what she believed was a long gun and the other was holding a blunt object. She armed herself with a blunt object and the suspects fled the residence, last seen running northbound.”
“Money is believed to be a motivating factor for this incident,” Kolb said.
The suspects are described as white men who wore dark clothing. One of the men wore a green hat.
