Armed police descended on Nailsworth after masked men forced their way into a property and threatened the homeowner with weapons.
Officers were called out to a property in the Gloucestershire town last week following reports of an aggravated burglary.
It was reported that three men had forced entry into a house in Bridge Street and threatened the victim with weapons.
They took the victim’s car keys and a quantity of money but did not steal the victim’s car.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call police on 101 quoting incident 437 of October 9.
