Four injured in knife attack robbery

Four people have been injured in a knife attack during a robbery in Wokingham, Berkshire. At least three of the people in the flat were stabbed.

Three men aged 29, 22 and 23 and a 20-year-old woman, were taken to hospital for treatment.

Six offenders - described as black men - entered a residential property in Peach Street, wearing balaclavas. They then assaulted the four people in the flat before leaving.

Their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. The 29-year-old man has been discharged from hospital

This was a frightening incident for those involved and was understandably concerning for the surrounding residents. I would like to reassure the community this is not believed to be a random attack and it is believed the victims were targeted by the offenders.
