We were called this morning (Friday) at 07:44 to the incident which happened at the doorway of the house.

Officers are asking anyone with footage that might be relevant to come forward and assist with the enquiry. That could be dash cam footage that captured the incident, or CCTV footage that may have captured the offender/s arriving, or leaving the scene.

Our Officers are dedicated and tenacious and will leave no stone unturned in finding the offender. If this is backed up by the community, by people coming to us with any piece of information they have, this will help make our job easier and quicker.”
