CHESAPEAKE- A 12-year-old escaped through a window as three men beat up a man in his house.  

Police say the 32-year-old man had gotten home just before 1:00 a.m. Friday and was forced at gunpoint into the house on Orchard Grove Dr. Once inside, the three attackers assaulted him.

The man's mother and girlfriend, along with the boy, were inside but not hurt.

The gunman didn't take anything, MPO Kelly O'Sullivan told WVEC.com.

After beating up the man, they drove away.  The only description of the suspects is that they were dressed in black clothing.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment and should recover.

Anyone with information should call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
