A group of thieves threatened four people with screwdrivers as they robbed a home in Great Cornard earlier this week.

The incident occurred at about 9pm on Monday, when three men entered a house at Highbury Way and threatened the four occupants, demanding cash and property.

The victims were made to sit in a room together while the offenders searched the house.

One of the men snatched a gold chain and stole earrings from one of the occupants, a woman.

A large amount of cash, four iPhones, and a silver ladies Rolex watch were also stolen.

The three men then exited the house via the back door and are believed to have fled in the direction of The Drift at approximately 9.45pm.

Two of the offenders are described as talking with an Eastern European accent, whilst the third man had an English accent, and all three men were masked by balaclavas during the incident.
