Intruder killed with own sword

`A Melbourne resident has fought back against two armed intruders, killing one with a sword he seized from his attackers, police said.

A second intruder fled with cuts to his hands and legs after the attempted armed burglary in Melbourne’s south-east early today. [..]

Police said intruders – one of whom was armed with a handgun and the other with a sword – demanded money.

The male occupant was tied up when he arrived home, a police spokesman said.

But one of the occupants, a male aged in his 30s known as Johnny, fought back and grabbed one of his attacker’s weapons, police said.’
