Athens-Clarke police responded to a report of a home invasion off Jefferson Road early Saturday morning.
The victim told police two males dressed in all black and holding an automatic handgun approached him when he was returning home from work.
The men then forced the victim into his home, where they tied his hands behind his back and began punching him in the face and ribs.
The victim’s wife heard the commotion in the living room, and came out of a bedroom to find the men beating her husband, noted a police report.
The wife quickly retreated back to the bedroom with her children; the suspects followed her in and told her that nobody would get hurt if she would just tell them where everything is, according to the report.
The woman told the suspects where to find jewelry and money.
According to the report, the burglars stole $1,400 in cash and nearly $2,000 worth of electronics, among other items.
