Late on the night of Tuesday 8 September, into the early hours of Wednesday 9 September, three men were seen in Halifax Drive acting in an unusual manner, close to the junction with Helena Crescent.
When a resident living in the area – a man in his 60s – opened his front door to confront the men, he was assaulted by two of the three men, who also tried to take a bracelet from his wrist.
A third man then targeted the man’s wife, taking bangles from her wrists a necklace from around her neck.
All three then ran from the property and left in a small white sports-style car, driving towards Marwood Road and Beaumont Leys Lane.
The man was went to hospital where he was treated for facial injuries.

“Did you see a small white sports car in the area? Did you notice anything about the way it was being driven? I’d like to speak to anyone who has a dashcam installed in their vehicle.
