A man was seriously injured by alleged robbers inside his home in Glen Anil, KwaZulu/Natal paramedics said on Saturday.
Netcare 911 spokesman Jeff Wicks said five men armed with knives entered the man's home and demanded valuables and cash from him and his family.
A scuffle ensued and the home owner was stabbed in his neck, ear and arm.
Captain Thulani Zwane said the man's wife also hurt her finger when the men tried to prevent her from pressing a panic button.
The couple's child, who was also inside the house, was not harmed.
The suspects got away with two cellphones.
A case of house robbery and assault has been opened.
