Detectives are investigating an aggravated burglary in the Farndon area of Newark in which a 71-year-old woman was attacked.

We were called to The Copse at around 7.30pm yesterday (Wednesday 9 January 2019) to reports that two men had got into the house by saying they were police officers. They forced the woman to sit down taking her keys and locking her in the house whilst ransacking it. They got away with keys and a mobile phone.

The men were dressed in black with face coverings.

If you saw anything suspicious or have any information that could help, please contact us on 101 quoting incident 739 of 9 January 2019. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
