Images of stolen jewellery released
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.
