Detectives have released an efit picture of a man they would like to speak to in connection with an aggravated burglary in Braintree.

Police understand three men forced their way into a property in Clockhouse Way, at around 10pm, on August 22.

Upon entering, the men threatened a woman.

Two suspects, who were each carrying a knife, were reported to have threatened her with the weapons at separate points during the incident.

The men also demanded she handed over a number of items, including cash worth a two figure sum.

The suspects then took a number of items from the property, such as mobile phones and house keys.

One man is described as black, of big build, and between 5ft8 inches and 5ft9 inches tall.

He is thought to be around 23 and 28-years-old.

Another suspect is described as white with blonde hair and of a skinny build.

He has a thin face and is also around 23-years-old, and 5ft8 inches tall.

The last man is black and also described as being around 23 to 28-years-old.

However, he is taller than the other suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Kayli Iron at Braintree CID on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Forecasters have warned of strong winds of around 65mph that are expected to sweep into the county this evening, as a wet and windy night is expected to continue into the morning.
