Man, 66, clubbed with baseball bat

Police are appealing for information after a 66-year-old man was clubbed with a baseball bat as he answered the door of a house in the Sheffield Road area of Woodhouse.

The victim was kicked in the face before three masked intruders fled in the attack last Thursday.

Det Con Steve Robinson said: “This is a particularly nasty assault on an elderly man. It is unclear whether anything was stolen from the property, and the motive is unknown.”
