Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a robbery at a home in Gedling.

At around 6.40pm yesterday (Tuesday 7 November 2017) two men stormed into a summer house in the back garden of a property in the Burton Road area where the owners were present.

The men tied the owners up, brandished a knife and demanded cash. They then locked the victims up in the summer house before entering the main house.

They stole a small quantity of cash, a white Volkswagen Transporter van and a grey Mercedes C220 AMG Sport.

The male homeowner was taken to hospital for treatment for his injuries.

Detective Sergeant Daniel Johnstone, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "This robbery has understandably left the victims terrified, as I’m sure anyone would be if they were threatened with a knife and tied up.

"I would appeal to anyone who has information about the men involved in this robbery or any other information that could help us to please come forward."

Anyone with any information about the robbery is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 724 of 7 November 2017, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Incident Number: 

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
