Carolina Street Home Invasion

Amarillo, TX - Police are looking for three black men in connection with a home invasion early Wednesday morning.

Amarillo police say 33 year old Benjamin Pigman was asleep in his house at 1524 South Carolina. At about 2:15 am he heard a loud noise and woke to find three black males in his house. They had kicked in his front door.

He says he confronted them as they went toward a room where his two young children were sleeping and they began to fight with him. He was apparently shot several times with an air soft pistol and his head was beaten with bricks as he was held down.

The suspects also threatened the man with a real pistol, (that was recovered at the scene) before leaving in a newer model, black Chevy pickup. Pigman was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The incident remains under investigation. If you have any information you are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 374-4400.
