The burglary took place late at night in the Cerro Norte neighbourhood of Cordoba, in central Argentina – and all of the raiders are currently being treated in intensive care.

All four of the men (two are pictured) were treated in intensive care and one required his face to be stitched up (bottom right) after it was sliced open with the sword.
