A man holding his baby daughter has been threatened with a crowbar by burglars at his home in Soham.

The incident happened at about 6.45pm on 11th December in Sand Street when the victim heard noises coming from his garage outside.

He went to investigate holding his one-year-old daughter and found two men in balaclavas in the garage.

He challenged them and they made off empty-handed after dropping a hedge trimmer and threatening him with the crowbar.

They got into a silver Ford Mondeo which was later found burned out near Lakenheath.

The man and his daughter were not injured but he was shaken up by what happened.

PC Paul Symonds, investigating, said: "There were people passing by when this incident happened and I would like to speak to them as they could have important information.

"I would also like to speak to anyone who saw the Mondeo leaving the Soham area."

Anyone with information should contact PC Symonds on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
