Daylight raid by carried out by men in balaclavas

This was a terrifying attack which occurred in the middle of the day and left both victims traumatised. We are looking for five men, they are described as black, wearing balaclavas, gloves and dark clothing.

One of the suspects was wearing a green camouflage jacket. I'm convinced that someone in the local area has seen or heard something that could assist us with our investigation.

I would encourage anyone who has information to speak to our incident room as soon as possible.
