Winona Couple Beat Up, Hospitalized

By  | 

Officers in Winona, Minnesota say two men used a piece of wood to beat up a couple in town early on Tuesday.

Neighbors say police told them the victims were targeted around 3 a.m.

KAGE radio reports that on the 650 block of West Fourth Street, the couple woke up when the suspects knocked on their door.

A 55-year old woman was jumped when she answered, tied up, and beaten, then her 57-year old husband was attacked when he tried to stop it.

Officers say one of the men had a run-in with the couple just days ago.

Neighbors call their part of town a quiet neighborhood.

Nothing from the home was stolen. Police are withholding the couple's names and have yet to describe the suspects.
