Three men wearing balaclavas and armed with a wrench got into a house in Weymouth and threatened the occupants.

Police say the incident happened at an address on Bradford Road just before 10pm last Friday 3rd October.

The back door was unlocked and the men stole a lap top and money from the victim's purse.

They made off in a maroon coloured hatchback towards Chickerell Road.

Detective Constable Daniel Rowan, of Weymouth CID, said: "This was a distressing incident for the victims.

"I would urge anyone who saw suspicious activity along Bradford Road between 9.30pm and 10pm on that day to come forward.

"Also, I would like to hear from anybody who witnessed the described vehicle driving at speed along Chickerell Road at around 10pm.

"Anyone with information about the men responsible should contact police in confidence."

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 3:499. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
