Images of stolen jew­ellery re­leased

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

PO­LICE have asked mem­bers of the public to keep an eye out for dis­tinc­tive pieces of jew­ellery stolen dur­ing an ag­gra­vated bur­glary.

Masked men as­saulted an el­derly cou­ple and their daugh­ter af­ter barg­ing their way into the house in Wal­cot Road, Bar­nack, near Peter­bor­ough, be­tween 11.45am and 12.15pm on Fri­day, May 11.

A 44-year-old woman was punched, slapped and kicked as she tried to fend of her at­tack­ers, who then barged past her par­ents, aged 84 and 83years-old.

The daugh­ter was left with bruises af­ter the in­ci­dent.

Thou­sands of pounds worth of jew­ellery was stolen by the men, who put it into a pil­low case be­fore mak­ing off in a black es­tate car, which may be a BMW.

The bur­glars both wore bal­a­clavas, were white, about 5ft 7ins or 5ft 8ins in height and also wore black fleece tops, and black trousers.

Among the items stolen is a dis­tinc­tive Na­tional Union of Rail­way­men mem­ber­ship pin.

De­tec­tive Sergeant David Tay­lor, in­ves­ti­gat­ing, said: “We hope re­leas­ing these images will en­cour­age any­one who knows the where­abouts of this jew­ellery to come for­ward.

“The jew­ellery is of fi­nan­cial and sen­ti­men­tal value to the vic­tims, who were left shaken by what hap­pened.

“I would en­cour­age any­one with in­for­ma­tion co con­tact po­lice.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the jew­ellery or bur­glary should call po­lice on 101, or Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555111.
