Cops hunt cou­ple’s at­tack­ers

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Strat­ton Wil­liams

Po­lice are still hunt­ing the heart­less thugs who at­tacked an el­derly Cam­bus­lang cou­ple.

Archie and Janet Daly were in their Cairn­swell Drive home when two masked men burst in de­mand­ing money.

Janet (81) was sprayed with CS gas but brave Archie (80) at­tacked the would-be rob­bers and tried to re­move one in­truder’s mask.

The sus­pects fled emp­ty­handed through a lane lead­ing to Rose­bank Drive fol­low­ing the at­tack.

Dis­gusted mem­bers of the public took to so­cial media to vent their anger at the thugs who car­ried out the un­pro­voked at­tack.

Mur­ray A Nix said:“A de­spi­ca­ble vi­o­la­tion of an old cou­ple in the sanc­tu­ary of their own home.

“Let us just hope that the sub-species re­spon­si­ble for this cow­ardly ac­tion are caught, con­victed and the max­i­mum sen­tence pos­si­ble un­der the law is handed down.”

Jim Mul­hol­land added: “Dis­grace­ful. Hope­fully some street jus­tice will be ad­min­is­tered swiftly to that scum.”

Gil­lian Green­horn said:“What’s the world com­ing to? Not safe in their own house, hope they are ok.”

Fol­low­ing the at­tack on Sun­day, Septem­ber 27, the el­derly cou­ple’s fam­ily put up a £1000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the ar­rest of those re­spon­si­ble.

A po­lice spokesman said:“Our in­quiries are con­tin­u­ing.”
