A 28-year-old woman has been punched in the face during a burglary at her own home
Police are now looking for three men wearing dark clothing after a 28-year-old woman was punched in the face and property stolen from her home during an incident in London Road South in Lowestoft yesterday afternoon, Monday 22nd November.
The woman was at home around 4.30pm when she answered a knock at the door.
As she opened the door a man pushed her back into the property, punched her and told her to sit down.
Three men then went into her home and searched the property. Items including a laptop computer were taken before the three left.
The woman was left shaken and was treated at the scene by paramedics for bruising and bleeding to her nose.
The offenders are described as white, and were all wearing dark clothing – baseball caps, hooded tops/ jackets with the hoods up over the caps and jogging bottoms. They also wore scarves partially over their faces.
Detective Inspector Darrell Skuse, who is overseeing the investigation, said; "This was a cowardly attack on a young woman who was simply at home watching television when the offenders knocked at the door. Very few burglars resort to violence and we are treating this incident very seriously. We need to speak to anyone who was in London Road South between 4pm and 5pm yesterday who may have seen three males meeting this description or anyone with information about who they are."
