An elderly Bloomington man was robbed at knifepoint in his home just after midnight Wednesday.

The man, in his 80s, had heard knocking on his door and opened it to find two men who forced their way inside, said Chief Deputy Terry Simons, with the Victoria County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities are not releasing the location of the robbery or the victim's identity while a team of officers pursues the investigation.

"He suffered no injuries, but it was pretty distressing for him," Simons added of the victim.

Simons said a description of the suspects and more information on the crime will be available as officers pursue leads.
