Man attacked by three men at home in Runcorn

A man has been attacked by three men at his home in Cheshire.

The 44-year-old answered a knock at his door on Lockgate East, Runcorn, on Friday night and was confronted by a man armed with a metal bar.

He attacked the victim as two other men then appeared and joined in the assault, which spilled out into the front garden. The trio then fled.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the attack and have been released on bail, police said.

Two men, aged 60 and 39, were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and a 36-year-old man and 28-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to assault.

The victim suffered marks and bruises to his arms and legs as a result of the attack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cheshire Police.
