Police launch witness appeal following aggravated burglary in Chesham

| August 12, 2015


Throughout Monday 10th August 2015 several attempts were made by men to enter flats at Tom Scott House in Pearce Road, Chesham.

Between 7.30pm and 7.45pm the three offenders entered the communal area of the block of flats and approached the victim, a man aged in his twenties, and forced him to hand over keys to a flat. He was forced to the floor during the incident and sustained minor cuts to his hands.

During the incident one of the offenders removed what appeared to be a knife from his waistband.

All of the offenders were Asian. The first is aged in his twenties, stocky with a muscular build, with dark hair, a dark goatee beard, had a gold tooth and was wearing a T-shirt and jeans.

The second offender is aged in his early twenties, tall, slim, and was wearing a grey hooded top and grey trousers.

The third offender, who is believed to have had the knife, is aged in his late teens, shorter and was wearing a dark-coloured hooded top.

They entered the property and searched the flat. Nothing was stolen.
