An elderly couple, who were sleeping in their house in the Penteada area of Funchal this morning, were surprised by an intruder. A hooded man tried to take money, and eventually woke the elderly couple.
The owner of the house tried to fight the thief, where he received an injury. The robber was able to escape and grabbed the car keys and fled.
He stole the car which was parked on the road, 150 meters from the house. In question is a Fiat Punto of yellow colour and registration number 58-98-LE, which has now been found.
Whoever knows more about the whereabouts of the car should contact the PSP, who took care of the occurrence.
