Elderly couple are robbed in home

An ELDERLY man was injured when he tried to defend his wife from two offenders inside their house last night (9th April).

Two masked men, who were armed with crowbars, entered the property in Thoresby Avenue, Kirkby-in-Ashfield.

Police believe a door to the property was unlocked. Nothing is believed to be stolen at this time.

Detective Inspector Rich Monk said: “This was a nasty attack on this couple’s home and the man had to receive hospital treatment, although his injuries are not life threatening.

“Attacks like this are rare and we want to speak to anybody who saw anything unusual in the area last night so that we can catch these offenders.

“I would also like to remind you to lock your doors, even when you are at home, and ensure you report anything out of the ordinary.”
