Police appeal for information after armed burglars forced entry into Ossory Way property

Police Appeal witness

Bedfordshire Police is appealing for information from the public following an aggravated burglary in Bedford.

Three men forced their way into a property on Ossory Way in Bedford at around 9.20pm on Sunday (11 October).

The offenders were wearing dark clothing and carrying weapons and threatened one of the victims as they barged their way in.

Another victim managed to push the intruders out of the property even after an unknown substance was sprayed in her face.

Detective Jason Wheeler, investigator on the case says, “This is a terrifying incident that has left the occupants of the house understandably shaken.

“I would like to hear from anyone who may have information about the three people responsible for this incident and I would ask any properties in Ossary way, Milbrook, Houghon Road and Walsingham Close who may have CCTV footage to get in touch as it might have captured vital information that could help our investigation”

If you have any information that could help our investigation please call 101 and quote the reference number 40/55456/20 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
