A farmer has been beaten with a pickaxe handle by a balaclava-clad group who raided his home in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

 

A spokesperson from the Gloucestershire police said: "The group entered through the front door and attacked the victim with the handle of a pickaxe.

 

"They demanded money and ended up searching the property, making off with several thousand pounds in cash."

 

The attack happened between 7.50pm and 8.10pm on Saturday (10 October) at a farmhouse in the village of Uley, near Stroud, Gloucestershire.

 

The victim, believed to be in his 50s, suffered serious facial injuries including a broken cheekbone and was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital where he underwent surgery.

 

He remained in hospital today (Tuesday, October 13) under observation.

 

The group is believed to consist of three men in their 30s and 40s, of medium build, between 5 foot 10 inches and 6 foot tall.

 

Investigations in to the attack to try and catch the gang are ongoing.
