I doubt very much they decided to pick a random house in westcliff to rob and stab someone, The victim would have been known to alleged suspects in some way.

Its about time one should be allowed to defend ones self with non lethal weapons. Pepper spray or taser gun comes to mind. These are not allowed and we are suppose to just ring the police and wait for ever as the nearest police vehicle is miles away dealing with drunks. What a wonderful Society we life in

If someone attempts to rob your home, for no reason, while we're in it early evening, I cant understand how there could be more to it? my partner defends his family and home and suffers several stab wounds from it... i dont see how anyone can think anythin different to wat is read on here?
Unfortunately a similar incident happened to an elderly couple a week or 2 ago not so far from here does that mean they were known to they're robbers aswell?
I think people need to take a step back people makin the wrong comments or remarks...feel its extremely sad for anyone to jump to conclusions
