Cash stolen when men force way into elderly couple’s west Suffolk home
An elderly couple from Cavendish fell victim to burglars yesterday when a group of men forced their way into their home.
Police were alerted to the incident in High Street at around 6.10pm last night, after the couple raised the alarm via neighbours.
The female resident answered a knock at the front door and three or four men barged past her and demanded money.
The male resident was pushed into a chair before the offenders carried out a search of the property and stole a quantity of cash and a wallet containing cards before leaving the address.
Neither of the occupants were physically hurt but both have been left shocked by the incident.
