Men Assault Elderly Couple Outside their Home

According to Sudurnes police, this case is considered very serious. The men have often been in breach of the law before and their motives for attacking the people are unclear, Morgunbladid reports.

It is possible that the attackers had some unfinished business with other inhabitants of the building and that they were collecting a drug debt.

The man that they attacked, who is in his sixties, suffered a broken nose and arm. His wife and daughter were also injured, but not as severely.

The victims could give the police a good description of the attackers so they were easily caught.
