The Warwick man who was stabbed and beaten during a vicious raid on the Woodloes estate has undergone surgery and now been released from hospital.
Initial police reports said that the man, believed to be in his late twenties, had been stabbed in the head as well as several times on his arm.
But Detective Constable Phil Hewish, one of the officers investigating the crime in Boswell Grove, near Deansway, said it has since been established that the victim’s gaping head wound was the result of a brutal beating with a baseball bat.
Two masked raiders kicked down the door of the house just before 1.30am on September 23 waking the man and a woman inside.
As the woman rang for help, the man confronted the intruders and was given the terrifying beating before mobile phones and gaming consoles were snatched.
DC Hewish said the pair made off towards the car park at the rear of Harmer Close. He is appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
