Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Paul Gordon, said: “I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around the time of the offence or has information on who is responsible to contact Surrey Police as a matter of urgency.
“The offender is clearly a dangerous and violent individual who will go to great lengths to get what he wants and anyone who has their suspicions around someone they know should share this information with officers.
“Although the investigation is still in the early stages, it is believed this was a targeted offence and it may be possible that the offender had carried out visits to the area prior to the burglary, if you have seen anything which may connect then please come forward.
“I would urge anyone who either lives or runs a business in the area and who has CCTV on their property to also make contact as this may hold footage vital to our investigation.
“All information passed to Surrey Police will be treated in the strictest of confidence or if you would prefer to provide details anonymously the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contact on 0800 555 111.”
The offender is described as a white man, around 6ft 4ins in height and of stocky build. He was wearing a black balaclava, black jacket and black leather gloves. He spoke with a London accent.
Detectives assisted by uniformed colleagues from the Reigate and Banstead Safer Neighbourhood Team are making a number of enquiries in the local area.
