Aggravated Burglary – Witnesses Sought

February 26, 2013, 10:45 am

Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a family were threatened
by armed raiders who burst into their Luton home last Sunday night (February 17).

At around 10.30pm the 47 year old victim was watching television in her home in Tinsley Close,
Luton, when an offender entered the room and told her to stay still while two other offenders
made their way upstairs.

The victim was then taken upstairs where she saw her son being held face down on a bed while
an offender put what appeared to be a gun to his head. He was also stabbed in the leg with a
screw driver. The third offender had emptied the contents of a suitcase onto the bed and then
held a knife to the victims son and demanded money. She said she did not have any cash and
the offenders then fled the house.

Detective Constable Simon Day, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone
who may have witnessed the attack or seen the offenders in the area.

The first offender is described as a white male, around five feet five inches tall, of stocky build
and armed with two knives. The second offender was a black male, 20 years of age, around
five feet five inches tall – he was carrying the suspected firearm. The third offender was also
black, around six feet tall and of average build.
