HIGHLAND>> An elderly man at his garage workbench was attacked by a suspect who walked into the garage and knocked him to the ground from behind on Saturday, July 22, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department news release.

The attempted home invasion robbery occurred at 9:11 a.m. in the 7100 block of Devon Avenue, north of Base Line Street, the release stated. The suspect ran off when the victim yelled for a family member who was inside the house.

The victim suffered several cuts and bruises and required stitches for head injuries.

The suspect left in a vehicle described as possibly an older Honda sedan, with a second suspect.

Deputies are seeking surveillance video or pictures from the neighborhood, or other information which might help identify the suspects.
