Officers appeal for witnesses following Longfield aggravated burglary
Kent Police is appealing for witnesses following a report of an aggravated burglary in Foxwood Way, Longfield.
The incident is believed to have taken place between 8pm and 9.30pm on Monday 9 January 2017 when it was alleged that three men forced their way into a property through the front door as one of the victims was entering.
The men are said to have been armed with coshes and a knife and made threats and demands for money. There were two other victims in the house, a man and a woman. The man suffered stab wounds during the incident and is currently in a London hospital receiving treatment. His injuries are described as serious, but not life-threatening.
The suspects are reported to have stolen a watch, a ring and keys to both the victim’s car and property. They have been described as white with south London accents and wearing black clothing.
A dark saloon vehicle with distinctive alloy wheels was seen near to the property during the time of the incident and officers would like to speak to the owner of the vehicle who might be able to help them with their enquiries.
Investigating Officer Detective Constable Kara Sweetland said: ‘This violent attack was a terrifying ordeal for the family and we want to hear from anyone who might have seen anything or can provide us with information.’
