Two or more robbers forced their way into an Ashburn home Saturday by knocking on the front door and hitting the man who answered with a blunt object, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said.

The 21-year-old victim was assaulted around 4:15 a.m. at a home on Hiddengrove Court, the Sheriff’s Office said. The man was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released on Saturday.

The victim believed it was one of his friends at the door, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Anyone with information about the assault and robbery is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1919.
