A gang of balaclava wearing robbers forced their way into a man’s home punched him the face and then demanded his money at knife point.
The robbery happened at around 10pm on Friday, September 7, at a home in Osprey Drive, in Stowmarket.
The victim, a man aged in his 50s, opened his back door as three men in balaclavas and gloves pushed their way past the victim.
“They then proceeded to punch him in the face and one of the offenders then threatened him with a knife demanding money,” a police spokesman said. “A male friend of the victim, aged in his mid 40s, also in the property entered the living room and was assaulted in the face.”
The homeowner left the property and his friend, while cleaning his face, heard two of the gang going through kitchen drawers before leaving the home.
