Woman hit with a hammer in house raid
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.
