The victim - a 71 year old man - remains in a serious condition in hospital.

Detective Inspector Jacqui Nicholson from force CID, said: "This was a grotesquely violent attack on a man in his own home…we suspect the robbery was targeted and not a random attack.

“We’ve responded quickly to make several arrests but we’d still appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time that might have seen anything, to get in touch as soon as possible."
