Man tells of burglary horror

A HOMEOWNER relived a robbery ordeal he and his family went through two years ago when three men forced their way into their house.

Ajay Narayan gave evidence in the trial of Filipe Delana, Sanaila Tabuavula and Jone Di Atulaga.

The three men are charged with four counts of aggravated robbery and one of theft of motor vehicle.

Mr Narayan told the court that his son was the first one to wake up on the day of the robbery.

He said it was around 3am.

He said his son, then woke him and his wife up and asked them to call the police as he heard someone trying to shake the burglar bars loose.

Mr Narayan said the lights in the house were switched on by the time the three men came into the house.

He said his son was hit on the head with a metal strap and brought into his room.

Mr Narayan said his wife told the three men that they could take whatever they wanted but not to hurt the family.

He said two of the men wore masks while one had none.

Mr Narayan said he could recognise this man and when asked to identify the man with no mask in court, Mr Narayan pointed at Mr Delana.
