TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man was hurt in a home invasion Wednesday morning, April 12.

According to Tucson Police Department Sgt. Pete Dugan, this home invasion was not a random occurrence and this specific home was targeted. The suspects were allegedly looking for drugs.

According to officers, a woman called 911 just before 4 a.m. When officers arrived at the home in the 1900 block of East Pine Street, near South Campbell Avenue and East Irvington Road, they found the front door had been forced open, but no one was in the house. Police said at least one of the victims had escaped to another home.

Tucson police said the suspects, who haven’t yet been found, were dressed as police. Dugan said the victims reported the suspects were wearing jackets that said “police” on them. No description of the suspects was available as of late Wednesday afternoon, Dugan said.

Dugan said Wednesday afternoon that a man had suffered injuries in the home invasion and was taken to the hospital to be treated. A woman and child, who were also inside, were unharmed.

Officers have not released the identity of the victims.
