CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - A man was severely beaten in the head in his Chattanooga motel room Monday night.  Willie Beard told police that two men dressed all in black broke into his room at the Days Inn on E. 20th Street at 8:15 p.m.  They reportedly told Beard they would kill him as one of them beat him in the head with a pistol.

Beard was pushed to his bed while the attack continued, but the attack ended when the hotel manager came to investigate.  Police say the suspects fled in a dark sedan.

"There's no indication of motive thus far," said Chattanooga PD Sgt. Jerri Weary.  "Investigators are still working and questioning few people who have close relation to Mr. Beard but as of right now we have no leads."  

Beard was released from Erlanger Medical Center Monday afternoon.  Call Crime Stoppers at 698-3333 or Chattanooga police at 698-2525 if you have any information on this incident.
