Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was tied up and assaulted by a gang of robbers who raided his home.
Three men struck at the victim’s house, on Station Road, Dunscroft, at around 11.30pm on Sunday 4 November.
The victim, a 61-year-old man, had his hands bound with tie wraps before being subjected to a ‘violent’ attack, say Police.
Detective Constable Caroline Thomas, the investigating officer, said: “The offenders then ransacked the man’s property, stealing cash, jewellery and cigarettes.
“At this time, we don’t have a description of those involved as the victim has understandably been left incredibly traumatised by what happened.
“This was an incredibly violent assault which left the victim with sustained, extensive bruising to his face and body. I’d like to ask anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area that evening to contact us.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 17 of 5 November 2018. You can also speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
