A man was injured during a burglary in Paget today.

A struggle took place after a number of men broke into the property on Valley Road at about 10.30am, according to the Bermuda Police Service.

The occupant was assaulted by the suspects and was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspects left the area, but officers carried out a search and found an abandoned motorcycle a short time later and arrested four men.

According to a police spokesman, the suspects are believed to have got into a car after abandoning their motorcycle, and that car was later seen parked in the Happy Valley area of Pembroke.

At noon, at least a half dozen officers were seen near a yellow property in Happy Valley Road, and at around 12.10pm a man in a white shirt was seen being placed in the back of a car in handcuffs.

Witnesses or anyone with information should contact CID on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
