(MCT) — A 58-year-old man was hit in the head with a gun Sunday night after two men entered his Englewood home demanding money and drugs, police said.

The attackers came in through a back door on the first-floor of the two-story building about 10:50 p.m., Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said, though it’s unclear whether the entry was forced.

The man was at home with his wife and a female relative, on the 1500 block of West 59th Street, Greer said. Nobody else was harmed in the attack. The man refused medical attention at the scene, Greer said.

Two attackers fled when they heard approaching police sirens, Greer said. Nobody is in custody.
