Tyler man robbed and beaten

TYLER, TX (KLTV) – An East Texan man was robbed Thursday night around 10 o'clock. The victim, John Marcus Roy, answered the door after hearing a knock and was promptly beaten and robbed.

The apartment is on the 500 block of Bois d' Arc Avenue in Tyler.

Roy says that he answered the door because the men outside told him they just wanted to talk. He says he had no idea what would happen next.

"I went to open the door and two guys rushed in on me and robbed me. Robbed me for about $2963.00," says Roy.

John Roy spent about six hours in the hospital for minor injuries. He says that nothing else was taken and that this was the first time anything like this has ever happened to him.

Police say that no suspects have been named in the case.
