Police on the hunt after attempted bicycle robbery

Have your say

Burglars attacked a man in a terrifying house raid in Havant.

The victim suffered a broken arm when two raiders broke into the property demanding cash and jewellery.

Police have only just revealed details of the robbery, which happened at an address in Pembury Road between 8.00pm and 8.45pm on Sunday, February 2, 2014.

A hampshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: ‘At around that time two men wearing balaclavas have broken into a property in Pembury Road and threatened the occupants before demanding cash and jewellery.

‘The men left with three watches; a Raymond Weil, a Cartier and a Longines, as well as stealing a dark blue Range Rover parked on the driveway. This was abandoned a short while later at the entrance to Pook Lane near Warblington Church.

‘During the incident one of the victims, a man in his 40s was assaulted. He was treated at Queen Alexandria Hospital for a broken arm.’

Detectives say the first intruder is described as white, about 6ft tall, and of slim build.

He was wearing a black long sleeved jumper and black trousers/jeans.

The second intruder is described as white, about 5ft 7ins tall, and of stocky build.

He was wearing a black long sleeved jumper and grey tracksuit trousers.

Detective Constable Mike Strangeway said: ‘We are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the offenders in the area of Pembury Road or Pook Lane, or any suspicious vehicles or persons in the area of Pook Lane at the time of the offence.

‘Whilst we are treating this matter very seriously, I’d like to reassure the community that there is no evidence to suggest a wider risk to the general public.

‘We would also like to hear from any members of the public or businesses that may have been offered any watches for sale which match those described in this appeal.’
