Two Red Bank men and one from Long Branch broke into a home in Tinton Falls Monday and beat an occupant bloody as payback for some perceived wrong, police reported.

Timothy Johnson, 27, of Leighton Avenue, Larry Johnson, 37, of Montgomery Terrace, and Kwame Johnson, 37, of Long Branch, face multiple charges for the alleged attack in a William Street home that left the victim with a contusions and other injuries.

The relationship of the three, if any, was not immediately available.
