A young woman from Cheltenham has been punched in the face repeatedly by a group of men who demanded cash.
Sophie May Wakefield was home alone when she opened the front door to what she thought was a delivery person.
But then the gang, wearing masks, pushed her to the floor and repeatedly punched her in the face. The men then fled in a dark coloured car.
The 21 year old's parents, who are on holiday in the Canaries, are now trying to get a flight home.
Her father is offering a £5,000 reward to catch the suspects.
The burglary happened just before 7am in the Warden Hill area on Friday 3 November and the police are asking any witnesses to come forward.
Detectives believe this is an isolated incident.
