Police are still searching for three suspects who invaded a West Side home at gunpoint early Thursday, assaulting the owner and stealing a car and other items.

The victim was struck several times in the assault and is now being treated at the hospital, police said. His injuries are not serious.

The suspects are believed to be driving a stolen blue Mitsubishi Endeavor.

Police said the attack happened just after 1 a.m. at a home near DeVargas and 98th Street.

The victim was standing outside his home and was forced inside at gunpoint.

The victim was tied up with duct tape and electrical cord and his head was covered with a pillow case.

 No electronics were taken, but the man’s phone, car and credit card were taken.

The victim had only a partial description of the suspects, except to say that that one is possibly Hispanic and that they may have been talking about going to Mexico.
