Two people were struck on the head with a brick during an apparent robbery attempt inside a Lancaster home late Tuesday, according to city police.

Police said an unknown man, believed to be in his 20's, forced open the door of a home in the first block of E. Filbert Street at around 11:20 p.m. and then attacked a 91-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman.

Both victims suffered head injuries and were taken to a hospital. Their injuries do not appear to be life threatening, police said.

Investigators said the crime does not appear to be a random act.

It is unknown if anything was stolen from the home, police said.
