An 84 year old man gives two big thugs a good hiding.
“AN 84-YEAR-OLD man was asleep when two brawny, armed intruders – one of them more than 2 metres tall – broke into his Port Macquarie home in the early hours of the morning.
They were wearing hoods and armed with a hammer, a pole and a kitchen knife when they entered his bedroom and demanded money at 2am on Sunday morning, police say.
The elderly man was struck on the arms with the pole when he tried to get out of bed but then he tackled one intruder who was armed with a knife and hammer.
During a struggle on the floor, the 84-year-old broke the blade off the knife and stabbed the intruder when he tried to hit him with the hammer.
He then disarmed the other man with the pole and chased both intruders from his house.”
