Police are appealing for witnesses after an aggravated burglary took place at around 11pm on Thursday 5 May.

Two men forced entry to a property on Tredworth High Street and threatened the occupants. They demanded money and drugs and carried out an untidy search of the property. A large amount of cash and a Louis Vuitton handbag were stolen.

Police attended after receiving an emergency call about the incident from a passer-by. Officers disturbed the offenders and began to chase them from the scene but they weren’t caught.

One of the men is described as white and the other as black. They had their faces partially covered.

DC Adam Jago, the investigating officer, said: “I understand this incident will seem alarming to the local community, but I wish to reassure the public that this is an isolated incident and a thorough investigation is underway to bring those responsible to justice.”

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101 quoting incident 509 of 5 May.
