A Macon man was assaulted at his home Thursday afternoon.

The attack happened before 1 p.m. on the 2400 block of Goodwin Drive.

About 1:30 p.m., Macon police interviewed witnesses while emergency medical services worked on the victim’s injuries.

The man had dried blood on his chest and wounds to his head and right shin.

Neighbors said he was knocked on the head with a gun.

One neighbor said he heard loud noises and found the victim on the ground in front of his home. While he picked the victim up, he said, two males were inside the house.

“They pushed their way in,” the victim said.

It is unclear as of Thursday if anything was stolen.

Soon after the initial attack, the two men left the premises and ran, the neighbor said, “what caught my attention was the big pistol they had.”

The neighbor said he chased them for a spell and heard from another witness the men escaped in a red Impala.

He said he doesn’t understand the motive behind the attack.

“It ain’t nothing but children and old people who live here,” he said.
