Investigators seek to identify about five men accused of assaulting a 50-year-old man during a home invasion last month.

On Dec. 4, deputies responded to a rural home in Edinburg in reference to an aggravated robbery, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office.

Victims reported that about five men wielding handguns and an assault rifle broke into their home. A 50-year-old man reported being assaulted by the men--who were wearing black ski masks-- before they fled in four separate vehicles, according to the news release.

The man was transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Surveillance video captures the vehicles, described as a red four-door passenger car, two white four-door passenger cars and a tan or grey four-door truck.

The Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information to contact the Criminal Investigations Division at 956-383-8814 or the Crime Stoppers hotline at 956-668-TIPS.
