Elderly man gagged and brutally beaten in his own home in Costa del Silencio

A man of around 60 years of age was brutally beaten in his own home in the Alondras Park complex in Costa del Silencio around 4am yesterday morning. After gaining entry the attackers gagged the poor man before inflicting a severe beating on him with a blunt object and even cutting him with a knife. Most of his injuries were to the upper body and head.

When emergency services arrived he was unconscious, and was immediately transferred to Hospiten Sur in critical condition. His injuries were considered so severe, however, that he was subsequently transferred to Candelaria hospital. The Policía Judicial del Instituto Armado are still trying to discover a motive for the attack; the level of violence seems excessive for a straightforward robbery. Police have not immediately been able to confirm the victim’s identify, nor his age or nationality.

Local sources say that over the past few weeks there have been several such violent robberies, both in the area’s streets, and in dwellings in the general Costa del Silencio area and Guaza. Victims appear to be chosen for their age, and are subjected to excessive violence.  El Dia
