At around 8.20 pm on Saturday 21 February, a woman and her daughter were watching TV at their home on Lambs Crescent when they heard the front door open.

The mother went to investigate and found an intruder in her kitchen. The man lunged towards her and punched her in the face before grabbing her by the hair and dragging her in to the lounge where she fell to the floor. He then punched her several times while she was on the floor. Two other men joined the intruder immediately in the house and began attacking the woman’s daughter, as well. She was punched in the face and kicked about the body. None of the men spoke during the robbery and left with only the daughter’s pink iPhone.

The first man is described as being black, about 5ft 10 in -5ft 11 ins tall, with brown eyes and of medium build. He was wearing woollen gloves, a black shiny tracksuit with the hood up and a khaki woollen scarf over his mouth and nose. The other two offenders wore dark clothing and were shorter than the first. One of them also wore a diamond patterned bandana to cover his face.

The two women were taken to Russell’s Hall hospital for treatment for cuts, bruises and swelling and were later released.

Anyone with any information is asked to ring 101 quoting incident 639 of 21 February.
