Fin­ger lost af­ter at­tack

The Advocate (Perth) - - LET'S EAT -

A MAN has lost a fin­ger af­ter be­ing at­tacked with a ma­chete dur­ing a vi­o­lent home in­va­sion in Swan View.

Mid­land De­tec­tives have re­leased footage of the armed rob­bery that took place on Satur­day, Septem­ber 9.

Po­lice said at 4.35am four men armed with ma­chetes and firearms en­tered the house on Churchill Drive through the back door.

The men threat­ened a man and woman in their 40s and de­manded cash.

The male vic­tim man­aged to es­cape and the of­fend­ers gave chase. A con­fronta­tion oc­curred in the front yard, where he was struck mul­ti­ple times with a ma­chete and lost a fin­ger. The woman in­side the house was also as­saulted.

The of­fend­ers stole the man’s gold Ford Fal­con, which was found aban­doned in He­lena Val­ley the next day.
