We are appealing for witnesses after an aggravated burglary in Basingstoke this morning (1 October).
Officers were called to an address on Winterthur Way at around 1.30am after a group of three men forced entry to the flat armed with a knife.
The victims were threatened and trapped on their balcony by the intruders, who left when a neighbour called the police.
The men are described as: • A black man, around 30 years old, and around 5ft 5ins tall. His hair was worn in braids, and he had a short beard. He was wearing black clothing. • A black man, described as being tall with a large build. He had black hair, and was also wearing black clothing. • A black man, with a lean but broad build, also with black hair and wearing black clothing.
We have conducted a number of enquiries and are now asking the public for any information that may assist our investigation.
Were you in the area at the time? Perhaps you saw three men matching these descriptions enter or leave the area? Do you have doorbell footage that could help?
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 with reference 44230400106, or submit online via: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
