BRIDGEPORT — A city man was injured and several of his electronics were stolen by two masked assailants who barged into his Coleman Street home Friday afternoon.

The man told police that two men knocked on his door shortly after 1 p.m. He opened the door and the men pushed past him, striking him in the face with the butt of a gun. Police spokesman William Kaempffer said the man then fled his home to get help. The intruders took the man’s television, XBox gaming console and Samsung Galaxy III cellphone.

The victim was treated at the scene for a cut above his eye. He said he could not identify his attackers and doesn’t think he knows them.

Police said the suspects fled in blue, four-door car headed toward Vine Street.
