Omaha (KPTM)-Police are still looking for an armed robber, who they say attacked a man in his home.

 Police said the gunman broke into an apartment, beat up a man, and stole his car.

"I felt threatened, so I had a shotgun. Right there in the middle of my living room. He took the shotgun and hit me in the face with it," said Kevin O'Brien.

It was a nighmare Kevin O'Brien was awake fore.

Early Tuesday morning, O'Brien opened his door to let his friend in, and someone else came with her.

‘I didn't know who he was or what he wanted, he was just like a madman," said O'Brien.

O'Brien said the man broke into his apartment and demanded his credit cards, phones, and car keys. "He demanded my car keys before he hit me. Of course I gave it to him, fine get out of here," remembered O'Brien.

O'Brien said after he handed over his keys, he believes the man ran out of the apartment and took off in his car. However, he said he can't remember any of it because he was unconscious. "That shotgun, he hit me in the face with the butt end of the shotgun."

Police found his car abandoned near 24th and Arbor later that day.  Police said during their search, they noticed a truck driving without it's lights on.

Police said they lost sight of the car, but received a 911 call moments later.

"They called me this morning, my mother-in-law lives here, and said a truck ran into her house," said Mich Shannon.

Police said the driver of the truck panicked when he saw them and drove into this home, just about a mile away from O'Brien's abandoned car.

Police said the truck was stolen and they found drugs on the driver.

"I heard a big band, I was having coffee, me and my wife," remembered Charles Centeretto. "I came out here, and here it was."

It's a broken fence for Centeretto and a black eye for O'Brien. "That guy just has no fear of the law," said O'Brien.

O'Brien, still hoping, that his nightmare is almost over.

Police are still searching for the man in the home invasion.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers, that's 402-444-STOP.
