Huntingdonshire man in hospital after gang attacks him in own home

A MAN was left with serious injuries after he was attacked in his home by a gang of five men last night (Wednesday).

The 53-year-old was at home in Meadow Drove, Earith, when the men broke in just before 10.15pm. The men, wearing balaclavas, assaulted him and demanded money.

The victim was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, with serious but not life threatening injuries. He remains in a stable condition.

Det Sgt Leigh Allman said: “I am keen to hear from anyone who has any information about this incident or the men responsible.
