On entering the woman was with three men, which made the councillor’s wife to sense they were up to no good. She therefore suggested they offer the intruders some money to spare them.

After getting an undisclosed sum of money, the men tied-up the wife together with her granddaughter aged 14 and grandson aged 12, before stabbing the victim many times with a knife, before fleeing the scene in a white van.

As the assailants left the children started crying for help and neighbours came to their rescue.
