Four burglars forced their way into an Iver home before dragging a victim from his bed on Wednesday evening.

Four men, armed with a knife, a metal pole and a stick, broke into the property in Wood Lane at around 9.40pm on Wednesday (16/5).

The family of three were threatened before the father was dragged out of his bed. The burglars then ransacked the property and left the scene with a Rolex watch, a diamond ring, mobile phones and cash.

All of the burglars are male. The first is white, about 5ft 1ins – 2ins of a medium build with an eastern European wearing a black mask. The second is about 5ft 2ins – 3ins of a medium build. He was wearing a black mask.

The third burglar is about 5ft 8ins – 9ins and of a small build. He was wearing a brown, woollen mask. The fourth is white, about 5ft 8ins – 9ins of a small build. He was also wearing a brown, woollen mask.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Luke Pratt said: “This is a shocking offence on a family in their own home, where they should feel safe.

“I would appeal to anyone with any information about the offence to contact the force as soon as possible.

“The easiest way to leave us information is on our website at quoting investigation reference number 43190146082, or you can call 101.”
