A 33-year-old victim told police that he arrived home at 10 p.m. that night and parked inside his garage. When he opened the car door, he was immediately struck in the head and saw a pistol pointed at him. 

Two suspects demanded money and tried to take his car. However, they didn’t know how to drive one with a manual transmission.
