Mayfair man beaten at home

Two uniden­ti­fied men in­vaded a May­fair home, pis­tol-whipped the oc­cu­pant and stole his wal­let and cell phone on May 12, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

The per­pet­rat­ors re­main at large, ac­cord­ing to Lt. Den­nis Rosen­baum of North­east De­tect­ives. Po­lice were called to the crime scene on the 4300 block of Vista St. at about 1 a.m. There were no signs of forced entry in­to the house, but the vic­tim — who was iden­ti­fied only as an adult male — re­por­ted that the crooks forced him in­to the base­ment, where they hand­cuffed him and beat him with a gun. The in­truders ran­sacked the place and stole a wal­let con­tain­ing cred­it cards and an un­dis­closed amount of cash, along with a cell phone and a set of keys. The vic­tim suffered minor in­jur­ies and was not hos­pit­al­ized. Call North­east De­tect­ives at 215-686-3153 to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
