Appeal to locate two burglars who threatened woman with bat at home in Sudbury
A pair of intruders threatened a woman in her 30s with a bat inside her own home, during an aggravated burglary in Sudbury this week.
The incident occurred on Tuesday, some time between 2.50pm and 3pm, when the two male suspects knocked on the front door of a property in Blackfriars, before forcing entry inside when the victim opened the door.
The men subsequently threatened the victim with an object described as a black bat and made demands for money.
After the woman claimed she did not have anything, the intruders fled the scene, making off in a silver Mercedes, although the specific make and model of the vehicle are unknown.
The victim was shaken but unhurt by the incident.
Both suspects are described as white men aged between 40 and 50 years old.
One of them is approximately six feet tall, while the other is described as having missing teeth and wearing a black beanie hat.
A spokesman for Suffolk Police confirmed no other similar incidents have been reported, and enquiries into the attempted burglary are now ongoing.
Anybody who witnessed any suspicious activity in Blackfriars around the times stated is asked to contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101, quoting the crime reference number 37/4505/20.
Alternatively, get in touch with the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555111.
