A Spokane Valley man was awakened this morning by home-invasion robbers who hit him over the head and broke his finger before stealing prescription medications and other valuables.
The robbers - one who was armed with a knife - remain at large, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. The men are described as white, 5-foot-11, thin and were wearing gray-hooded sweatshirts and gloves. The man with the knife was said to be in his 20s, the other was described as 35 to 40.
The men forced their way into a home at 8600 E. Broadway about 7:50 a.m. and confronted the sleeping homeowner, who is in his 60s, with the knife, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
They fled with the medications, a handgun and gold coins after assaulting the man, the Sheriff’s Office said.
