After returning to his home on Uranus Crescent, Signal Hill, a Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal resident walked into an ordeal that has left him laying slashed up in a hospital bed.
According to a police source, the man had gone out during the day. When he returned at approximately 1.30 pm, the two men were already in his home. The source then stated that the house door had allegedly been forced open.
Once inside, the men, armed with pangas, proceeded to repeatedly and savagely assault the man, hacking the victim’s head, shoulders and one of his hands.
The source further claimed that a random person heard the commotion going on in the house and called law enforcement and paramedics. Thankfully, paramedics arrived promptly and got the man to hospital where he is currently stable.
Newcastle SAPS spokesperson, Lizzy Arumugam explained that the suspects are still at large, and Newcastle detectives are currently conducting investigations into the matter.
