Two men invaded a residence in the Tree Streets section of Johnson City on Saturday with a shotgun and robbed the residents, assaulting one, police said this morning in a news release.

Police said the two men — one black, one Hispanic — went into 108 West Pine Street and robbed the residents at gunpoint. The black man was carrying a long-barrel weapon, which police also described as shotgun used to assault one victim.

The men stole a wallet with an undetermined amount of cash, two cell phones and Fentenyl pain patches. The victim was struck with the shotgun's stock, and he received a facial laceration. He was taken to Johnson City Medical Center, where he was treated and released.

The robbers left the residence before police arrived, according to the release.

Police asked anyone with information about the home invasion to call the Criminal Investigation Division at 434-6166 or Crime Stoppers at 434-5158.
