WRIGHTWOOD, Calif. ( — A Wrightwood man was attacked by two would-be robbers who tried to force entry into his home after he answered a knock on his front door.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman told Victor Valley News the attempted robbery was reported just before 10:00 pm, in the 5700 block of Victorville Street in Wrightwood on January 5, 2019.
