Machete attack in Torrisholme

A GANG dressed in black and wearing balaclavas attacked a man with a machete in his own flat.

The victim, aged 25, was at home on Lancaster Road in Torrisholme between 9.30pm and 10pm on Wednesday, December 29, when six or seven men got in.

Once inside, the group, one of which was armed with a machete, threatened him.

He received a cut to the cheek before he was punched and kicked to the ground.

The group then fled from the flat after stealing a mobile phone.
