(INDIANAPOLIS) - A hammer was the choice of weapon in an early morning home invasion that sent a young man to the hospital.
Dezman Shanks, 21, is in fair condition in Methodist Hospital after an intruder attacked him in his sleep at his mother's home on Eisenhower Drive.
Shanks mother told WTHR Eyewitness News her home looked like a homicide scene from the amount of blood her son lost in the attack.
Shanks was stumbling and bleeding when he made his way to a neighbor's house for help after the intruder took off.
According to a police report, the intruder hit Shanks in the head with a hammer, several times, before getting away with his cell phone and $5 in cash.
