Po­lice step up hunt

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

PO­LICE have stepped up their hunt for three men who at­tacked an el­derly cou­ple with a base­ball bat at a raid on their city home.

A 68-year-old woman was knocked un­con­scious as she and her hus­band, also 68, were sub­jected to the ter­ri­fy­ing at­tack in Bi­field, Or­ton Gold­hay, at 9pm on April 21.

De­tec­tives are car­ry­ing out houseto-house in­quiries to find if peo­ple liv­ing nearby might have any in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent. Of­fi­cers are also trawl­ing through CCTV images to look for clues to the iden­tity of the at­tack­ers.

A po­lice spokesman said: “In­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing and we would con­tinue to ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion from any­one who might have any de­tails about this in­ci­dent.”

The cou­ple’s or­deal be­gan when the hus­band an­swered a loud bang at their door to be con­fronted by three masked men, one of whom was armed with the bat and who at­tacked him. The trio then en­tered the liv­ing room, knock­ing the woman un­con­scious. They searched the prop­erty only to leave empty-handed.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call po­lice on 101.
