A GROUP of men armed with crow­bars and base­ball bats tried to break into a prop­erty in South Ruis­lip be­fore they smashed up two cars parked out­side.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened on Thurs­day Novem­ber 10 in Por­tal Close at around 8pm.

Dur­ing their at­tempts to get into the res­i­den­tial prop­erty, be­tween four and six of­fend­ers were dis­turbed by the oc­cu­pant, at which point they dam­aged the cars parked out­side.

They then made off in a large 4x4 type ve­hi­cle to­wards Wet End Road.

DC Bar­rett with Hilling­don CID is in­ves­ti­gat­ing and is call­ing for wit­nesses to come for­ward.

Ex­tra pa­trols will be in place thanks to the South Ruis­lip Safer Neigh­bour­hoods Team who will be re­as­sur­ing res­i­dents and look­ing to iden­tify any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour.

If you were in the area at the time, if you saw any­thing sus­pi­cious or if you saw the large 4x4 ve­hi­cle you are asked to con­tact Metropoli­tan Po­lice on 101 and ask for DC Bar­rett at Hilling­don CID. You can also con­tact the South Ruis­lip Safer Neigh­bour­hoods Team at Ruis­lip Po­lice Sta­tion on 0208 246 1823.

WIT­NESS AP­PEAL: Po­lice are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion about the van­dal­ism and at­tempted break-in that took place in Por­tal Close, South Ruis­lip, on Novem­ber 10
