The suspected burglar.

An unidentified suspected burglar was on Sunday inflicted with deep machete cuts after he was caught attempting to steal wine and alcoholic beverages from a shop along the Atu Street intersection of Goldie Street in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.

The burglar was said to have broken into the shop in the early hours of the day with three other accomplices who managed to escape from the scene of the incident.

An eyewitness, B.F. Johnbosco, who spoke with PUNCH Metro on Sunday, said the thieves had broken into the wine shop around 5am, but someone sighted them and raised an alarm.

Johnbosco said in an attempt to nab the four suspects, three escaped while the fourth who was still busy gathering drinks inside the shop, was apprehended and dealt with severely.

The suspect, who was lying on his back had severe machete wounds all over his body but was still breathing and his eyes were open.

He was later conveyed by the police to the General Hospital, Calabar, at about 8.45 am.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Hogan Bassey, confirmed the incident, saying some items were retrieved from the burglar.
