Police are investigating a bizarre home invasion in which a Tacony woman reported she was terrorized by two men who forced her to take pills and attacked her with a baseball bat, a glass candle holder and scissors.

But the home invaders fled without stealing anything, and the 22-year-old woman left Aria Hospital-Torresdale without being treated, police spokeswoman Officer Jillian Russell said.

The incident occurred just after midnight on Princeton Avenue near Algard Street, Russell said. The woman told police she was watching TV when two men, dressed in black clothing and ski masks, broke into her home through a living-room window, Russell said. The woman reported that the men sliced her neck and stomach with scissors, beat her with a baseball bat and candle holder and forced her to ingest pills. Her injuries were minor.
