Two people were arrested after authorities say they pistol-whipped a man in a Gwinnett County home invasion Tuesday night, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Tylor Nellon, 18, and Jevon Wilson, 28, were booked into the Gwinnett County jail on charges of home invasion, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, kidnapping, battery, armed robbery and probation violation. Nellon also faces a financial transaction card fraud charge.
Police are still searching for two more suspects, Dequon Miller and Torey Richardson.
According to Channel 2, the four men entered a Snellville townhome located on Dorian Drive, ransacked it and assaulted a man inside.
The alleged beating left the man with an eye injury, Channel 2 reported. He was treated at a nearby hospital.
At one point, the suspects allegedly forced the victims to hand over their phones and credit cards and tell them their pins.
Police believe one of the suspects watched the victims while the others left in one of the victims’ Jeep and went to a nearby QuikTrip, Channel 2 reported. The men were seen on surveillance video using the credit cards to get $100 and other unspecified items.
Police told Channel 2 they believe the suspects initially went to the home looking for drugs.
