MASKED burglars loomed over two men's beds before launching a violent attack on them in a raid, police have said.

The victims, 20 and 53, were woken up to see the men standing over their beds at 10.30pm on Halloween night last week.

Hampshire police has said one of the burglars, who was 6ft1in and stocky, was wearing a 'Halloween-style mask' with fake blood coming from the mouth, and it had black eyes and black eyelashes.
