A have-a-go hero homeowner single-handedly fought off a gang of five robbers using his martial arts skills after they burst into his home wielding MACHETES.

David Pugh, 55, had been asleep when the thugs stormed his home demanding cash before they started attacking his teenage son and 20-week-old puppy.

He leapt into action and bravely fought off the masked men with his bare hands despite them being armed with machetes as well as baseball bats and golf clubs.

Incredibly, he managed to send the gang packing empty-handed from his detached home in leafy Catherine-de-Barnes, Solihull, West Mids., after a ten minute struggle.
