Man se­ri­ously in­jured in hold-up in St Paul’s Bay

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A man was se­ri­ously in­jured yes­ter­day when he was held up by three men as he was on his way to work in St Paul’s Bay.

The man, a 47-year-old farmer from Mġarr, was on his way to his field when he was ap­proached by three men who de­manded money. An amount of cash which the po­lice said is “sub­stan­tial” was stolen.

The man was sub­se­quently beaten up, but he was able to go to the po­lice sta­tion in Mosta to re­port the in­ci­dent.

He was later taken to hos­pi­tal where he was found to be suf­fer­ing from griev­ous in­juries.

Mag­is­trate Caro­line Far­ru­gia Frendo is con­duct­ing an in­quiry.
