A MAN is recovering from his injuries after he was assaulted by burglars in his own home.
The 62-year-old confronted two men in his home on the corner of Bowring Road and Coburg Road in Ramsey.
Sergeant Andy Kneen of Ramsey police said: ‘The gentleman was assaulted by both the men, who then left then premises. Although the victim’s injuries have been described as significant, they were not life-threatening. He was taken to Noble’s Hospital for a check-up, but fortunately he need no ongoing treatment.
‘We believe that this offence was committed about 7.30pm on Wednesday, October 17.’
The offenders were white men, one in his mid- to late-20s and the other in his early 30s.
Sergeant Kneen said: ‘I would ask that anyone who was walking or driving in the immediate area at about this time who noticed anything unusual, in particular in Coburg Road, to contact the police at Ramsey.’
Local officers and officers from CID have been, and will continue to, conduct house-to-house inquiries in the surrounding area.
The scene of the crime has been examined by the force’s crime scene examiners, and officers are awaiting the results of forensic tests.
