UPDATED--Can of peas helps Vistula victim save her life

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Toledo police are looking for a second suspect involved in a Tuesday morning home invasion.

Witnesses say they heard someone beating on an apartment door at the Vistula Heritage Village on the corner of Erie and Locust Streets in north Toledo. When they looked out, they saw two masked men with guns barge into an apartment.

The witnesses say Toyia Taylor, who was in the apartment, yelled she had been pistol-whipped and that she started beating one of the suspects, Gregory Banks, with a metal can.

One of the suspects took off on foot. Banks was beaten so badly he had to be taken to the hospital.

"Very scared. So scared that I thought I was going to die because I thought they were going to come to my place and kill me because I had my head out peeking out," said Victoria, a witness who asked that her last name not be used.

Banks is currently listed in critical condition at St. Vincent-Mercy Medical Center.
