An elderly town resident encountered burglars inside his home in the early morning of Nov. 2 and suffered minor injuries as a result, police said.

Police received the call just after 4:30 a.m. to a home on Ruffner Road. The man reported awakening to at least two people inside his home. The man then suffered minor injuries in some kind of interaction with the suspects, police said.

The suspects made off with multiple items from the residence, including cash and electronics, police said. The resident did not require medical attention.

Police are asking anyone in the area of Rosendale Estates during the overnight hours who may have seen suspicious vehicles, people or activities to contact police.

No other burglaries were reported in the area.
