Man and woman tied-up in burglary

Northamptonshire police are appealing for information following an aggravated burglary at a house in Spinney Drive, Collingtree, last night (1 January).

A man and a woman were at their home in Spinney Drive when three men, all wearing balaclavas, entered the property at around 8.15pm.

The men were carrying at least two knives between them - they threatened the woman, who was in the kitchen, and forced the man onto the floor of the lounge.

Both the man and woman were tied up and the woman sustained a minor injury to her arm.

The men demanded money and jewellery and carried out a full search of the house - they left the property having stolen mobile phones, tablet computers and jewellery.

"We can't be sure that this car was linked with the aggravated burglary but we certainly need to establish whether it can be ruled out of our enquiries."I would ask anyone with any information about this car - seen in the High Street area between 8.15pm and 8.30pm - to come forward.

"I would also like to hear from anyone who has information about three men acting suspiciously in the vicinity of High Street, Collingtree yesterday evening."

– Sergeant Jo Fletcher, of Northampton CID
