A man was hit over the head with a baseball bat when three men broke into a house in York Road, Southend.
The attackers were also carrying a claw hammer and stole various items from the property.
The first attacker is described as a white man in his mid 20s, slim, about 5ft 4 tall, the second was a black man in his twenties about 6ft tall, medium build and was wearing a baseball cap.
The third suspect is described as a black man, about 5ft 11 tall, in his twenties medium build.Seems there’s a lot of it going about!
Police are urging witnesses to come forward after the aggravated burglary in Fairfax Drive, Westcliff , at about 5pm on Saturday, September 22.
An Essex Police spokesman said a woman in her twenties was at home with her young children when three men ran across the back garden and into the house.
He said: “Two of the men had knives and demanded money. They searched the house and the woman ran out of the door and called police. Nothing was taken and the men made off.”
The first suspect is described as a black man, stocky, aged mid to late 20s, about 6ft tall with a beard and wearing dark clothing.
The second man is described as black, skinny, aged mid to late 20s and in dark clothing.
The third is a black man, skinny, aged mid to late 20s and also wore dark clothing.Hmmmm….
Oh. In case you’re wondering what the police response is to the gangs of armed burglars demanding money with menaces on their patch, well, they’re too busy conducting (failed!) operations to find drugs in Southend nightclubs…
