Worcester Editorial 17th Oct, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

TWO men used a claw hammer and crowbar to threaten residents during a burglary in Worcester.

The incident took place between 8.30pm and 8.50pm on Friday (October 14) at a house on Gillam Street where gold jewellery, a wallet and cash were stolen.

The two offenders forced entry to the home, made an untidy search of the property and threatened the occupants with a claw hammer and a crowbar before they took refuge within a secure room.

The first suspect is described as white man with a pale complexion, aged between 23 and 27 years old, around five feet nine inches in height and had styled facial stubble that was light brown with a hint of ginger in colour.

He was wearing a cream coloured fleece material top, a grey woollen beanie hat and spoke with a local accent.

The second suspect is also described as white, medium build and five feet 11 inches in height and wearing a balaclava.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have information about the incident, seen any suspicious activity with the area, or have been offered the items for sale. If you have any details then please call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting 732S of 14 October 2016.

Information can also be given anonymously to the independent charity, Crimestoppers, by calling 0800 555 111 or by visiting their website: .
