VILLAGE OF ESPY — A home invasion turned into a pistol-whipping in Columbia County.

Police said five men forced their way into a home, in the Village of Espy, early Thursday morning and pistol-whipped two people inside near Bloomsburg.

According to investigators, the intruders got into the home along Second Street by pushing in a window air conditioner.

Officials said a fight broke out and the men attacked the two people inside, then ran off on foot but left the pistol behind.

Police hope that the gun will help them find the intruders.

Officers believe Thursday morning’s home invasion was an isolated incident in Columbia County.
