Elderly man dies at hands of morning home invaders

Robbers burst in on a 75-year-old Desamparados man about 5 a.m. Wednesday, beat him about the head and left him to die.

The Judicial Investigating Organization identified the victim of the home invasion by the last name of Gamboa. They said he opened the door to his home to go exercise in the early morning when the robbers burst in.

Gamboa resisted, said the judicial agency, and he was beaten about the face until his son appeared from inside the home and caused the assailants to flee. He lived in San Jerónimo de Desamparados.
