DETECTIVES have rebailed five people arrested after a terrified family were held up at gunpoint.

Hampshire Constabulary confirmed that the men, who were arrested after a mother and her two children were held up in Sultan Road, Buckland, on April 13, were rebailed.

Reports at the time suggested six people had been involved in the raid on a 29-year-old woman’s home.

A search was launched in the area and at Toby Carvery in Copnor Road, Hilsea.

A Hampshire police spokesman said the force was continuing its enquiries to ‘identify all those believed to have been involved’ but would not be drawn on how many more people were being hunted.

- Two men, 18 and 20 from Southsea, were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary.

- A 21-year-old man, of no fixed address, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life or enable another to do so.

- A 25-year-old man, from London, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life or enable another to do so.

- A 17-year-old boy, from Portsmouth, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life or enable another to do so.

All have been rebailed until August 25.
