Man injured in home invasion

May 18, 2011

An east-side Indianapolis man was severely injured and robbed of $8,000 during a home invasion Monday night. Herbert “Junior” Wilson, 56, said he was beaten, handcuffed, blindfolded and pistol-whipped by at least three intruders until he told them the combination of his safe, which contained the $8,000 in money he’d been saving to buy his rented home on East Washington Street. Wilson said one of the men put a gun to his head, cocked it and pulled the trigger, then said “Good thing it was an empty chamber.”
Wilson was able to describe only one of the suspects.
