ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a 51-year-old New York man is hospitalized with a gunshot wound after coming home and finding three suspects attacking his teenage daughter during a break-in.

Rochester police say the man interrupted a home invasion and robbery soon after three masked suspects entered the house Monday night and began assaulting his 16-year-old daughter.

Officers say the man fought with the suspects and was shot in the lower body, but managed to get the weapon away from the suspect. Police arrived on the scene and took one suspect into custody and recovered a handgun.

The father is being treated at Strong Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Police say his daughter was treated for facial injuries.

Two other suspects remain at large.
