Isle Of Man / Ellan Vannin

Man assaulted in Ramsey burglary

A man was assaulted after confronting two burglars at his home in the north of the Isle of Man.

Police said the 62-year-old from Ramsey was attacked by both men when he found them "trespassing" inside his home.

The incident happened on 17 October at a property on the corner of Bowring and Coburg Road.

A police spokesman added: "The victim's injuries have been described as significant but not life-threatening."

The two men are described as being "white, one in his mid to late 20s and the other in his early 30s".

Sgt Andy 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."

Officers from the Isle of Man CID are conducting house-to-house inquiries while police await forensic information.
