Two men broke into a home in Hampton and assaulted another man Thursday morning, according to police.
Connecticut State Police were called to a home on Bigelow Road around 9:30 a.m. after police said two men forced their way into the home and hit a man inside the residence. The suspects tied up the unidentified man and stole a television as well as other items from the home, police added.
According to state police, the two men fled the scene in an older dark purple Ford Taurus and headed to Route 6 westbound.
The victim was not seriously injured during the incident, police said.
After conducting a search of the area with a K-9 and state police helicopter, troopers were not able to locate the suspects.
Police said they are looking for two Hispanic men with medium builds around 6' and one of them had black thick-rimmed glasses.
"Most people look after themselves here and each other," said Ed Burchfield of Hampton. "I think that's a good thing."
Neighbors in the area are concerned for their safety because the home invasion took place in broad daylight.
"We're out in the country," said George Rukstela of Pomfret. "You don't think this is going to happen out here."
Anyone with any information is asked to call state police at 860-779-4900. All calls will be kept confidential.
