Texas EMT attacked, beaten during home invasion

Two burglars burst into his home and attacked him on Memorial day; he was left with a badly swollen, black eye and more than a dozen stitches


SPLENDPORA, Texas — A Navy veteran and Harris County EMS worker is recovering after being attacked and beaten in his own home on Memorial Day.

Gary Fuchs is not a boxer, but he looks like one. “Just trying to survive; trying to get through it,” he said. “I almost think that they did not think I was going to fight back.” He looks like he got hit by a truck – a badly swollen, black eye and more than a dozen stitches.

It was Monday evening when the two burglars burst into his Splendora home. “I just heard the door open and before I could even turn and look they hit me in the head,” he said. They took a big screen and a hunting rifle, before they seemed to be spooked and bailed, leaving Fuchs, who had just come off a 72-hour shift, baffled.
