Akron police are investigating a home invasion early Friday morning downtown that involved the robber pistol-whipping a man.

Authorities responded at 2:30 a.m. to an apartment complex at 22 E. Exchange St. for a report of a robbery. The victims, a 23-year-old man and 22-year-old woman, reported that a suspect entered their bedroom and demanded money that was owed to him, police said.

The male victim was treated on scene and then taken to Summa Akron City Hospital.
