    Police in Rhode Island are searching for two people who broke into a home and beat a man and his mother in a violent home invasion. 

    According to WJAR, the incident happened shortly before midnight Wednesday on Grafton Street in Lincoln. 

    The suspects, who have no descriptions, broke in through the first-floor window, police said. They then woke up the 32-year-old man and proceeded to pistol whip him in the face. The man’s 67-year-old mother was also beaten in the face. 

    A 2-year-old child who was also in the home was not injured. All three were taken to a hospital. 

    The suspects ransacked the home, but it’s unclear if anything was stolen. They then fled in a silver or gray SUV. 

    Police believe the home was targeted.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 401-333-1111.
