FAYETTEVILLE (WTVD) -- A Fort Bragg soldier is in good condition following a brutal home invasion attack.

Captain Patrick Knight was beaten by three men on Friday evening. Investigators said Knight and his girlfriend arrived to their home on the 500 block of Vista Drive just after 6:00 p.m. The couple was there to collect personal belongings. The home was in renovation due to a recent fire.

Police said Knight and his girlfriend startled three men who had broken into the house. Those men attacked Knight, beating him in the head.

Witnesses report having seen Alexander James Smith, 26, running from Knight's home in a bloody shirt. A neighbor followed Smith in a car and called a friend. That man ended up tackling Smith about a half a mile away, at the corner of Broadfoot and Branson Streets. Witnesses said Smith was covered in blood.
