Wayne Tompkins, 50, is a bus driver for seniors in Carmel.
Tompkins went home for lunch on Wednesday afternoon and walked in on the two burglars.
The boarded window now at his home is a reminder of the violent confrontation and where one the suspects jumped out of as he fled.
Tompkins was struck with a blunt object on the face and head.
Investigators were back in the neighborhood on Friday, reviewing surveillance video for possible leads.
Tompkins was so seriously hurt he was airlifted to a hospital in Poughkeepsie, where initially he was listed in critical condition.
He was found semi-conscious in the house after co-workers became worried when he never returned to work.
Police are still looking for the suspects.
