Tring: Sledgehammer Used To Enter Shop

Detectives are appealing for information following an aggravated burglary in Tring yesterday morning (Tuesday January 22nd).

The incident happened shortly after midnight when two male offenders forced their way into a retail premises using a sledgehammer on Miswell Lane.

The offenders were then challenged by a man in the premises who they then assaulted before making off empty – handed in a dark coloured vehicle which is believed to have made off into Miswell Lane before turning right on to Weston Avenue.

The man who confronted the offenders suffered a graze to his head and bruising on his back as a result of the incident.

Detective Sergeant Craig Flint, from Hemel Hempstead police station told Heart: "This was an aggressive crime which saw these people force their way in to a premises before assaulting a member of the public who tried to intervene. They showed no mercy as they assaulted the victim who has been left in an extremely shaken state. I would urge anyone who may have noticed anything suspicious in or around the area at the time of the incident or who may have seen a dark coloured vehicle driving at speed away from Tring after the incident to contact us immediately."

Anyone with information should contact DS Flint on 101 quoting crime number D3/13/43 or alternatively Crimestopppers on 0800 555 111.
