Two armed robbers broke into a home in the southern Jutland village of Frifelt early this morning.

South Jutland police said that they were notified by a couple at 4:45 this morning that they had been attacked by two armed men.

“There were at least two suspects – armed with a machete and a pipe wrench,” Erik Lindholdt, the head of security at South Jutland Police, told Jyllands-Posten.

Medicines targeted
The male occupant of the house suffered minor injuries during the attack. Both the police and ambulance service were dispatched to the scene.

The two perpetrators spoke Danish and were both wearing dark jogging trousers, dark hoodies and caps.
