Burglar hit victim in face and ran
A BURGLAR who hit his victim in the face before jumping out of a window is being sought by police.
The man was wearing a balaclava when he broke into a house in Mole Drove, Gedney Hill, at around 12pm on Thursday.
The occupant of the house got home and went in through a back door. He heard a noise upstairs and was half way up the stairs when a man in a balaclava came down.
The offender hit the occupant in the face, causing him to fall down the stairs. The offender then ran back upstairs and jumped out of a first-floor window, before running off down the road.
The 51-year-old occupant had bruising and grazes and was treated by ambulance staff. Police are appealing for information on the offender, who may have leg injuries due the height he jumped from. Witnesses should call 0300 111 0300.
