While sleeping in their own home, an elderly couple is subjected to a “extremely violent attack.”

WHILE SLEEPING IN THEIR HOME, AN ELDERLY COUPLE was subjected to an “extremely violent attack.”

The man and woman, both in their 80s, were sleeping when the criminals broke into their home, demanded money, and assaulted them.

At around 12.26 a.m. on Thursday, January 6, the incident occurred in a house in Trowell, Nottinghamshire.

Before fleeing the scene, the suspect is said to have demanded money from the couple.

The woman has cuts on the right side of her head, severe swelling in her arm, and a possible broken jaw, according to reports.

Her husband is said to have facial, arm, and body injuries, but neither victim’s injuries are thought to be life-threatening or life-altering.

“This was an extremely violent attack on two elderly people who were sleeping in their own home,” Nottinghamshire Police Detective Sergeant Charlotte Henson said.

“The two victims needed immediate medical attention for their injuries,” she added, “but they are not believed to be life-threatening or life-altering.”

“Incidents like this can have a huge impact on someone’s mental and physical health, and we will do everything we can to support these two victims,” the officer said of the incident.

“Our officers have been at the scene all night and will continue to conduct inquiries to help piece together the puzzle of who committed this violent assault.”

“We would like to urge the general public to contact us if they have any information at all – no matter how insignificant they believe it is – as it may assist us with our investigations,” she concluded.

“I would like to reassure the public that our officers are doing everything they can to investigate this incident,” Broxtowe Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Mike Ebbins said.

“Residents in the area can expect to see a higher police presence to reassure the public that we are there if anyone wants to talk to us,” the Inspector added.

“We recognize the impact that incidents like this can have on people and will do everything we can to hold those responsible accountable.”

“I’d like to reiterate the importance of anyone with any information coming forward as it may assist us with our investigations,” he said.
