A man has been left in excruciating pain in hospital after he was stabbed and attacked with bats by three men who broke into his home in Sheffield.

Scott Sinclair, 46, is in hospital with serious injuries after the attack took place in the early hours of September 17 at his home in Valley Road.

He was stabbed four times in his head, neck and back, has a broken shoulder and ribs and his shin has been left in pieces.

Mr Sinclair said that the pain is 'horrendous' and he won't be able to return to the home that he loves.

After an earlier dispute at around 1am Mr Sinclair said that he woke up at 4.30am to three men attacking him in his home.

He said: "I was woken up to the most horrendous pain. I could see a bright light shining at me and three men standing over me.

"They were hitting me with baseball bats, sticks and at one point even a shovel.

"I was screaming at the pain, at first I actually thought that it was a nightmare and that it wasn't real.

"I think I passed out and I felt a prodding sensation four times and now I know that it was me being stabbed by them.

"They left and I just could not move I was in so much pain.

"I started to scream help me and my neighbours heard and ran around to come and help me.

"They really were amazing, they were talking to me and telling me that I was going to be OK whilst they called for help.

"I was scared stiff and still in bewilderment at what had happened."

As well as the injuries sustained in the attack Mr Sinclair also has a number of disabilities including a damaged vertebra which he sustained in a crash, Fibromyalgia and hypopituitarism which affects his bodies ability to produce vital hormones.

Now he fears he will be left in a wheelchair for at least 18 months due to the severity of his injuries.

Mr Sinclair added: "I can't return home as it's not safe.

"I am absolutely devastated about that and I absolutely loved living there.

"I am going to have to start afresh and move out of Sheffield and it's going to be awful but I have no choice.

"I've not slept since it happened, it has just been horrendous."

South Yorkshire Police have said that they are investigating the attack.

A spokeswoman for the force said: ""An investigation is underway into reports of a burglary and assault on Valley Road in Sheffield.
