Gilroy police are trying to find out more information about a home invasion that left two people hospitalized earlier this week, including a 75-year-old man who remains in critical condition today, a police sergeant said.At about 10:15 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to a report of a disturbance at a home in the 1000 block of Monte Bello Drive.Arriving officers found the 75-year-old victim lying on a couch in the home’s living room with severe head injuries. A 46-year-old man who is believed to be a friend of the other victim, was lying in the kitchen area with major injuries to his legs, police Sgt. Jim Gillio said.Both men were hospitalized. The 75-year-old man remained unconscious and in critical condition today, while the 46-year-old is in stable condition, Gillio said.Due to the victims’ conditions, little is known about the suspects besides that they spoke in Spanish and used a baseball bat to strike the victims, according to Gillio.Investigators also are not sure if it was one or multiple suspects, or if anything was taken from the home, he said.Although police are still trying to establish a motive, they believe the men were targeted for the attack rather than being victims of a random act of violence, Gillio said.
