Mitchell County investigators are searching for home invaders who beat and robbed a man.
A Meigs business owner, 48-year-old William Glass, says three men jumped him when he walked into his home on Highway 19 about 1:30 Saturday morning.
He said he had to fight for his life.
"When they pepper sprayed him, that took the fight out of him. Apparently they reached into a pants pocket where he had a large sum of money. Several thousand dollars," said Investigator Robert Rumble of the Mitchell Co. Sheriff's Office.
Glass said the home invaders also stole his phone and truck keys.
