4 armed men were seriously wounded when they broke into the home of a couple in Argentina.

Dias Costa, 49, and his wife Christina, 48, were asleep when the men, who were armed with two guns, broke into their home in Cordoba, around 3:30 a.m.

The men looked for valuables in the home. When Dias Costa realized that the thieves let their guard down for a moment, he grabbed a samurai sword and began slashing them.

He injured the four robbers quite badly. The men fled the house and escaped in a car that was parked outside.

The thieves managed to steal about $400.

The criminals did not get far. The driver, who was bleeding heavily, lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a parked car.

Police took the armed burglars to a hospital. All four of the thieves ended up in the intensive care unit at the hospital with serious stab wounds.

One was slashed across the face and hand. Another man was slashed from the cheek to the ear and the back of his head. Two others were slashed on the arm by the sword wielding homeowner.
