ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson police said a man was shot and pistol whipped during a robbery at a home Monday.

The shooting happened about noon at a home near the intersection of Whitehall Road and Clemson Boulevard.

According to the police report, the victim said he was visiting the home when two bandana-clad men stormed inside and demanded his money. The victim said he told the pair that he had no money and one of them fired a shot into the floor.

The report said the man told his friend he needed to leave, but she told him two or three times to stay a little longer, then she took a phone call outside when the men stormed in.

The victim said he told the men that his wallet was in his car, and when he got up to go to his car, he was shot in his leg. The victim said he was then hit in the head with a gun three or four times, before his shorts were pulled down and he was ordered to leave.

The victim ran out the back door, jumped a fence where he fell, the report said. The victim's car was stolen during the robbery, according to the incident report.

Lt. Tony Tilley, of the Anderson Police Department, said the victim was taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
