Search for suspects accused of attacking Verona homeowner

VERONA (WSYR-TV) - The Oneida County Sheriff's Office is searching for two suspects accused of attacking a Verona homeowner.

Deputies began investigating a menacing complaint around 9:05 Wednesday night at a home on State Route 365, about a mile south of The Turning Stone.

Deputies say around 9:05 Wednesday night, two men in their late teens or early 20s asked the victim for help with their broken down vehicle.

The homeowner called 911 and then went to help the two men.

That's when deputies say one of the suspects hit the homeowner in the head with a hard object.

The suspects drove away in a gray, early-to-mid 90s Volkswagen boxy style vehicle.

The homeowner was not injured and no weapon was seen. 

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to call them at (315) 765-2718.
