Burglars in balaclavas sought

Ilfracombe thugs armed with knife and pole

Three or four young men who burgled a home in Ilfracombe in the middle of the night at the weekend are being sought.

Police say three of four men, thought to be aged in their mid-20s, wearing black clothing and balaclavas, broke into a property in Regent's Place in the town around 2.30am on Saturday 19 September.

At least one intruder was armed with a knife and another with a metal pole.

The men are believed to have fled towards Regent’s Place and then down one of a number of alleyways.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have information, for example anyone who was woken by the noise saw the offenders fleeing the scene. In particular, officers would like to hear from anyone with CCTV that overlooks Regent’s Place, Avenue Road, or the connecting alleyways.

If you can help, please call 101 or email quoting crime reference CR/078748/20.
