Weapon wielding burglars attack man in own home

BURGLARS wielding knuckle dusters and wooden planks forced their way into a city home and subjected a middle aged man to a terrifying assault.

The crooks entered the house in Hemsby Close, Battenhall, last Tuesday (December 16) at 5.10pm and spent 20 minutes threatening the owner and demanding he hand over various items.

Once the 46-year-old victim had given the trio what they wanted, including his car keys, watch and leather wallet with cash and cards inside, one of the men assaulted him.

The attack left him with slight injuries which required treatment at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
