Men steal ute, cut owner
A TUART HILL man needed stitches to his wrist after he was attacked and had his ute stolen by three or four men outside his home on July 20.
He heard a noise outside his house about midnight and saw that a vehicle had crashed into the back of his Holden utility.
Going outside, he was assaulted by the men, one of whom was believed to have been armed with a bladed weapon.
He was cut in the wrist during the struggle.
He was also threatened, and asked to hand over his car keys which he did. The offenders then drove off in the victim’s ute.
The man made his own way to hospital to get the wound stitched before alerting police just before 5am.
