Two unidentified men remained on the loose Tuesday after reportedly bursting into a home over the weekend in Palmyra while dressed in camouflage clothing and assaulting and robbing the homeowner.

Maine State Police Cpl. Chris Carr said the home invasion happened just after 7 p.m. Saturday on Warren Hill Road. Carr said the men assaulted the male homeowner and took an undisclosed amount of cash, along with some prescription drugs and left on foot.

The homeowner suffered minor injuries and was taken to Sebasticook Valley Hospital in Pittsfield, where he was treated and released. It is not known if a weapon was displayed in the attack.

Carr said the incident remains under investigation. He said Maine State Police were assisted at the scene by deputies from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office. Sebasticook Valley Ambulance also responded.

The men involved in the attack were described as being about 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall and of medium build. Carr said the motive in the home invasion is unknown. He said the men might have gotten into a vehicle that was parked a short way up the road.
