Pair who raided home hunted
Pensioner was attacked
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.”
