A Maryland man is recovering from injuries he suffered during a home invasion in which the suspects used baseball bats and machetes to attack him.
Around 6:20 p.m. on Saturday, St. Mary’s County deputies responded to the 20100 block of Three Notch Road in Lexington Park for a reported assault.
They found a 32-year-old man injured in the backyard of his home after he said he had jumped from an upper floor window to escape the attack. He was transported to a hospital via medical helicopter, the county sheriff’s office said in a news release Monday.
The suspects fled the scene. Their motive remains unclear, but authorities say the incident does not appear to be a random act of violence.
