Police are investigating after a 72-year-old North Smithfield, Rhode Island, man was assaulted by two men in his own home.
Police say two masked men broke into the victim's home early Sunday afternoon, ripped out the telephone wires so he couldn't call for help, attacked him and ransacked the home.
The victim was found on his neighbor's front porch with lacerations to the head and face.
He was taken to the hospital but the injuries are not considered life threatening.
Police have not announced any arrests.
