Man arrested after grandmother was 'waterboarded'

31-year-old man has been arrested following a burglary where a grandmother was "waterboarded" inside her own home.

Francoise Jansen described the terrifying ordeal, which took place in St George's Hill, Weybridge, Surrey, as "sheer hell" and said she thought she was going to die at the hands of the two masked burglars who broke into her home.

The 73-year-old widow told how she was doused in boiling water by the intruders who held her captive for several hours and threatened to cut off her fingers.

Surrey Police said they had arrested the man from Brookwood, Surrey, today, in connection with an aggravated burglary.
