HIGHGATE, Vt. (AP) - State police in Vermont are seeking two men they say assaulted a homeowner while impersonating officers from the state fish and wildlife department.

Vermont State Police said the suspects claimed to be game wardens when they physically assaulted a homeowner in Highgate, a town along the Canadian border, in the early Friday morning hours.

The agency said the men wore dark colored jackets, camouflaged pants and face masks and strangled the homeowner and pointed a firearm.

Police say anyone with information about the incident should contact the St. Albans state police barracks.
