Did Animal Rights Activists Commit a Home Invasion?

If true, this is a pretty big deal. The alleged attack by six people wearing bandanas happened at a University researcher's home at 1:00 in the afternoon.

University of California-Santa Cruz Chancellor George Blumenthal confirmed late Monday that an off-campus home invasion by six masked intruders occurred at a faculty member's home. In a statement, Blumenthal called the incident "very disturbing."

Santa Cruz police reported that six people wearing bandannas tried to break into a Westside home just before 1 p.m., and that one of the family members, not the faculty member, was attacked before the intruders fled.

The male victim had made sure his wife and children were safe in the back of the house before he confronted the attackers. He suffered minor injuries after being hit with an unknown object. None of the other four people in the house were injured.

I'm not really sure what they would be trying to accomplish. If you want to sneak into a house, you wouldn't bring 6 people wearing bandanas in the middle of the day. And if it was some sort of physical violence they wanted, that must be one hell of a researcher to fight off 6 people. Or, maybe it was a bunch of idiot idealistic college students who had too many bong hits. Very weird.
