At about four o'clock in the morning, the man and his wife heard sounds from the cellar of their house
They initially thought the noises might be from a passing storm, but when the husband went to investigate after a time, he was assaulted and knocked down by a burglar who had broken into the cellar.
He was later taken to hospital.
It was still unclear late on Sunday morning whether any serious damage had been done.
