A LEDA man who had his foot broken in a robbery last Sunday has asked his attackers to make a different choice with their lives.

Bill Anglesey was home alone when the attack happened.

The 86-year-old said he heard a commotion and went to investigate when his kitchen door flung open.

“I must have had my foot by the door when it happened, when the young male kicked in the door it struck my foot,” he said.

“I was screaming out ‘look what you have done to me,’ there was mountains of blood everywhere.

“They didn’t take anything, he just looked through the house while the young girl stood outside then they left.

“They were both quite young; they don’t have to do that they can make a different choice.”

His wife Nancy said she was out with friends when it happened.

“I don’t even open the door for knocks now,” she said.

“They were so young – you want them to turn their lives around.

“They need to know that they can turn their lives around – they don’t have to do that.”

Rockingham Detectives are investigating the incident that happened at 6.50pm on March 18.

Mr Anglesey was taken to Fiona Stanley Hospital for treatment on his broken foot.

“I don’t know why I wasn’t taken to Rockingham but I was treated like a prince at Fiona Stanley (Hospital); the nurses were lovely,” he said.

The people police believe can help them with their inquiries.

Detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the people who they believe can assist with the inquiry.

The man is descried as dark skinned, 18-25 years of age, slim build, and 160-180cm tall with short dark hair.

He was last seen wearing an aqua blue shirt, blue shorts, and blue/white/red runners and carrying a blue backpack.

The woman is described as dark skinned, 18-25 years of age, slim build, 150-170cm tall, and shoulder length black hair.
