SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A 40-year-old man was assaulted and nearly kidnapped during a violent home invasion overnight in South Park.

The victim and his girlfriend were asleep in their home when three armed suspects forced their way into the home at about 2:30 a.m., according to San Diego Police.

The group demanded the victim's car keys, but he refused to give them the keys. The group struggled with the victim and assaulted him, before taking several electronics and attempting to kidnap the man, police say.

The victim continued to resist and was able to escape the group and call police. The suspects then fled the scene.

Police described the suspects as three Hispanic males, all wearing dark clothing, gloves, and partially covering their head and faces. They fled the scene in a dark-colored SUV-style vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call SDPD at 619-531-2000.
