Aggravated burglary in Amesbury - appeal for witnesses
Main article content
We are investigating an aggravated burglary at an address in Amesbury at the weekend.
At approximately 10.30am on Sunday 17 September, three men forced their way into an address in Solstice Rise and assaulted the homeowner before making off with car keys and a grey Peugeot 207 which was parked outside the address.
Officers have since located the vehicle in Salisbury. It has been seized as part of our investigation.
Det Sgt Darren Penny said: “We believe this was a targeted attack, however, it was extremely frightening for the victim. “We believe the three suspects were wearing masks at the time and used a plank of wood to cause injury to the homeowner.
“Extensive enquiries are currently underway by the South Burglary Unit to identify those responsible and those living in Solstice Rise can expect to see an increased police activity in the area while officers conduct their investigation.”
