A man arrested in connection with an aggravated burglary in Ravenshead has been released under investigation.

We received a call at 10.10pm on Monday 2 July 2018 after three men, claiming to be armed police, broke into a property in Kirkby Road threatened the occupants and demanded money from them.

A male occupant was punched in the face and a female occupant was threatened with knife as the suspects demanded to know the location of the money. The woman managed to escape and ran to a nearby Sainsbury’s store where she called the police. The offenders left the house shortly after.

Thankfully the occupants weren’t seriously injured.

Three mobile phones were taken from the address but were later recovered. The suspects also took the key to a vehicle and a kitchen knife. The car wasn’t taken.

A 33-year-old man was arrested in connection with the burglary and has been released under investigation.

Anyone with any information about the aggravated burglary is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 1127 of 2 July 2018, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.・@ ・@
