Coventry Telegraph - - NUNEATON NEWS -

A WOMAN was hit with a ham­mer as bur­glars raided her home in Nuneaton.

The ag­gra­vated bur­glary hap­pened in Pad­di­ford Place, near to Stock­ing­ford Pri­mary School, at about 3.30pm on Thurs­day, June 22.

The vic­tim, who is in her 20s, was in the rear gar­den of a prop­erty when she no­ticed an un­known man by the gate.

As the oc­cu­pant went into the prop­erty, she saw a sec­ond man who was car­ry­ing what is be­lieved to have been a ham­mer.

The man took a money pot and a metal Jack Daniels tin con­tain­ing an amount of cash be­fore hit­ting the vic­tim on the arm.

She suf­fered slight injuries and bruis­ing, and the two of­fend­ers ran off in the di­rec­tion of Church Road.

Both men are de­scribed as white, 5ft 4in and of slight build, with one in his early 20s who was wear­ing a dark sports jacket with the hood up and dark coloured jog­ging bot­toms.

The other was in his late teens to early 20s with mousy brown hair and was wear­ing dark coloured jog­ging bot­toms.
