After an Edgewood man reported an assault Sunday, police who arrived to assist him said they recovered suspected marijuana at his residence.

He told deputies that when he answered a knock at the door, two black men forced their way into his home, where one pulled out a revolver and began to hit him with the gun, according to the report. Deputies at the scene confirmed numerous cuts on the man's body and that his head was bleeding.

After a struggle, the resident said he pushed the suspect outside to the sidewalk and yelled at his wife to call police, at which point the intruders ran away toward Candlewood Court, according to the report.

His wife also gave a statement and said she saw the intruders assaulting her husband and at one point, one of them grabbed her by the arms and pushed her back into the residence.

The first intruder is described as tall with a goatee, hair pulled back in two ponytails; he was wearing a gray shirt. The second man was short and bald and was wearing a black T-shirt, according to the report.

Among the items recovered at the residence were a clear bag of suspected marijuana and a plastic container with suspected marijuana, according to the report.

A deputy on scene submitted the suspected marijuana to the lab for analysis and, according to the report, is expected to charge the male resident, whose name was not released, at a later time.

Sheriff's office spokesperson Monica Worrell said Thursday the caller's name was redacted from the police report pending charges being filed.
