Kenton man attacked with hammer

A KENTON man was beaten with a hammer and stabbed by robbers at his home two weeks ago.

Police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender said the man was on his way to the toilet at about 11.30pm when he came across three intruders in his house. They saw him and moved towards him.

The man had a security gate in front of his bedroom, but the robbers were able to climb over the gate. They hit him in the head with a hammer and stabbed his hands with a knife.
“They ordered him to lie down and covered him with a blanket. He could not see their faces,” Govender said.

“The suspects found the complainant’s safe key and took two shotguns, one .22 rifle and a 9mm pistol. They also took his TV, R40 cash and a laptop.”

The victim required hospital treatment for the injuries to his head and hands. A case of house robbery is under investigation.
