Port Elizabeth police have launched a  manhunt for four suspects, who  attacked  an elderly couple  in Tapayi Street, KwaNobuhle, a township in the City, in the early hours of Friday morning - at about 1:30.

"It is alleged that the suspects gained entry to the house through a bedroom window. One of the suspects pulled a knife and stabbed the 67 year-old female pensioner in the face and demanded cash.
