Man Stabbed With Own Sword

A man who tried to scare off intruders by waving a samurai sword was stabbed with his own weapon.

The 65-year-old took the sword from a display in his living room and waved it at three young people who were in the front garden of his flat in east London.

When he looked outside again, the garden was empty but he then found two young people on the landing outside his bedroom.

He shouted at them to leave but an assault followed during which one of the intruders stabbed him with the sword before they ran off taking the weapon with them.

The man suffered tab wounds and was taken to an east London hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

Police are appealing for information about the attack which took place in Barking Road, East Ham, at around 1.30am on Saturday.
