    Police are investigating a violent home invasion in Brooklyn.

    Police say a man barged into a home on the 600 block of Jefferson Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant Tuesday afternoon and assaulted a resident inside, then ran away. 

    It's not clear if he stole anything before he ran away.

    An air-conditioner repairman arrived at the home to see the victim bleeding from the assault.

    Detectives were investigating, and an NYPD helicopter was dispatched over the area. 

    The victim was taken to Kings County Hospital. It's not clear if he was targeted in the home invasion.
