Appeal following aggravated burglary in Cheltenham


Officers are appealing for witnesses following an aggravated burglary in the Warden Hill area of Cheltenham yesterday.

Just before 7am, one of the occupants of the house, a young woman, opened the front door to what she thought was a delivery person.  However, on opening the door, a group of men with their faces covered forced their way through and pushed the woman to the floor, repeatedly punching her.  They then demanded money and other valuable items before leaving at speed in a dark coloured car.

Officers are reassuring the public that they believe this to be an isolated incident.

Anyone with information should call Gloucestershire Constabulary on 101 or email quoting incident 54 of 3 November 2017.  Or you can report anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
