House break in and Assault with a Deadly Weapon


Friday the 13th, me and my mother was attached by three men armed with knives and a crowbar. I woke up Friday morning 12:30 with the barking of my dogs to find three men armed with knives and a red crowbar already in my room.  When I jumped up the first blow with the crowbar fell and they proceeded to hit me several times, over my arms my back my face.  My mother heard the commosion and rushed to my aid, but beeing an elderly lady she did not stand a chance against them.  They stabbed her once in he neck, just missing the main artery and fled, on foot, with only my two cellphones.  I ran after them, grabbing a knife, thinking that if I can just stab one of them, they will have to seek medical help, but beeing dazed by the blow to my head, I was to slow and fell over several cushens that they bumped down in the room were they had cut through the burglar bars. I managed to contact the neighbour and the police arrived a few minutes later.  Friday night, what we suspect are the same burglars, attacked another couple a few houses away from us and this time they stabbed the man five times in the back and three times in the head and only stealing a GPS. THESE MEN ARE STILL NOT CAUGHT!!!! A full description was given to them of two of them.  The third one I could not see as I was dazed by the blows.  They left no finger prints on the window, nor the burglar bars.  The police took the knife that I managed to knock out of one of their hands during my struggle with them, for finger prints, as well as one of their caps that they had on. I've never in my life wished harm on anybody, but the hate I feel in my heart now is unbelievable and I feel that I will not rest untill I can spit on their graves!
