Burglars target Luton home

Police in Luton are appealing for witnesses to come forward after an aggravated burglary on Friday night.

Three twenty-year-old students at a house in Meyrick Avenue were threatened with a knife and forced to hand over mobile telephones and cash.

One of the men was black man, approximately 20 years old, 6’1” tall, well built and wearing a black balaclava.

The second was white, approximately 19 years old, 5’9” tall with a slender build, a slight moustache and side burns.

“The offenders got away with an iphone4, a Nokia Lumia phone, a wallet with a small amount of cash and bank cards.

They caused damage to the front door of the property and did make a noise so it is possible that members of the public heard or saw two people matching these descriptions and could help identify those responsible.

I would urge these people to come forward and help with this investigation.”
