A PEN­SIONER was punched and kicked by rob­bers who at­tempted to raid her home.

A 73-year-old vic­tim was at home in Swal­low Street, Iver at about 10.10am on Tues­day July 7 when there was a knock at the door.

When she opened it two men forced their way in. One went straight up­stairs, while the sec­ond man held the vic­tim, punch­ing and kick­ing her, and throw­ing her to the floor. The vic­tim, who suf­fered mi­nor bruis­ing and cuts, man­aged to shout for help and the two men then ran out of the house.

Po­lice en­quiries have so far failed to trace any wit­nesses, and po­lice pa­trols in the Swal­low Street area have been in­creased. Of­fi­cers have now re­leased to e-fits of men they would like to speak to in con­nec­tion with the crime. The first man (top) is white, aged 25-30, is 5ft 9ins, of very slim build, with brown hair and a long face, and was wear­ing a high vis­i­bil­ity long-sleeved jacket.

The sec­ond man (be­low) is white, aged 25-30, is 5ft 9ins, of stout build, with a black short beard, a flat face, and was wear­ing a sleeve­less high vis­i­bil­ity jacket.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer, PC Paul Bridge­worth, said: “This was ex­tremely dis­tress­ing for the vic­tim, who is 73 years of age.

“I would ap­peal to any­one who has any in­for­ma­tion about this rob­bery to con­tact po­lice im­me­di­ately; you can do this by call­ing 101 or vis­it­ing a po­lice sta­tion.”
