A THOMAS Street res­i­dent claims he was bashed un­con­scious at his apart­ment by a hard plas­tic pipe swung mul­ti­ple times by a mem­ber of a trio wear­ing bal­a­clavas who in­vaded his home about 3am on Jan­uary 19. Po­lice say the man said the trio, one of who was a dark-skinned man and another a dark-skinned woman, smashed their way through the bot­tom half of the front door, be­fore say­ing they were go­ing to kill the man, who was at home with his un­harmed fe­male friend. He suf­fered fa­cial, ab­domen and foot bruises and cuts to his arms, in the at­tack, dur­ing which he may have fallen un­con­scious on the apart­ment’s walk­way, be­fore chas­ing the trio a short dis­tance. A wallets and watch were taken.
