Elderly Man Becomes Victim Of Home Invasion

Investigators in Laurel County are trying to track down the people who invaded an elderly man's home.

It happened last night on US 25, just north of London.

Police say two men entered 75-year old Paul Arnold’s home and forced him into a chair.

They took his wallet and a 12-gauge shotgun.

The men, who were wearing ski masks and camouflage also cut Arnold’s phone and TV cables and flattened his tires on two cars.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Laurel County Sheriff's office.

    We had a similar thing happen in Bell County recently. Only they beat and killed this old gentleman. We've got some pretty low individuals running around out there. Can we thin the herd a little?
