Bur­glars strike twice in street

Man chases armed trio out of home

Hayes & Harlington Gazette - - NEWS - By David Rivers david.rivers@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion after three peo­ple wield­ing weapons bur­gled one home and were chased out of an­other on the same road in Northolt.

Of­fi­cers said three sus­pects broke into a prop­erty in Horn­beam Close on Fri­day De­cem­ber 30 where they stole money while the oc­cu­pants were asleep up­stairs.

A quan­tity of cash was stolen in the early hours in the morn­ing.

Then in the same morn­ing, the trio broke into a neigh­bour­ing home but woke up the oc­cu­pant, who con­fronted them.

The res­i­dent chased them out of his house and smashed the rear win­dow of their get­away car, TAR­GETED: which was iden­ti­fied as a pale blue Citroen C3, po­lice said.

A spokesman for the Met Po­lice said: “Both bur­glar­ies are thought to have been car­ried out by the same sus­pects who were wield­ing weapons.”

Of­fi­cers from Eal­ing CID are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses and in­for­ma­tion, in par­tic­u­lar from any­one who may have seen the dam­aged Citroen or car­ried out re­pairs on the the rear win­dow.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call DC Ni­cholas Stra­chan at Eal­ing CID on 101 or to Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
