4 years ago

Kacey Adams, 33, and 32-year-old Daniel Wallace, two ‘barbaric and cruel’ burglars who tied up an elderly couple and poured boiling water over their heads are facing lengthy prison sentences.

According to Metro UK, the men smashed their way into their victims’ home in Halstead near Sevenoaks, Kent Police said.


The men subjected their victims, aged in their 60s, to a near-two-hour ordeal in which they beat them, poured boiling water from a kettle on them and threatened them with a knife and a hot iron.

They fled with cash and jewellery at around 11pm on April 26 2016.

Police were alerted shortly afterwards when the male victim managed to untie himself.

Both men were arrested at Heathrow Airport as they returned from a shopping trip to Dubai on May 31 2016.



Adams, formerly of Covert Road, Hainault, London and Wallace, of no fixed address, both admitted aggravated burglary and causing grievous bodily harm with intent at an earlier hearing at Maidstone Crown Court.

A third man, 27-year-old Drew Morris, of Rayleigh, Essex, pleaded guilty to simple burglary at a separate hearing at Maidstone Crown Court.

Detective Inspector James Derham, of the Kent and Essex serious crime directorate said: ‘Adams and Wallace were responsible for crimes which can only be described as barbaric and cruel beyond words.

‘The elderly woman had two kettles of boiling water poured onto her, inflicting horrific burns and injuries, which could quite easily have proved fatal.

‘The psychological scars that both victims are continuing to deal with are unimaginable.’

All three men are listed to be sentenced by Judge Charles Gratwicke at Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday.
