BURGLARS attacked the occupants of a house with knives and screwdrivers during a break-in last night.

It is believed that four men forced their way into the property on Steers Close in Latchford shortly before 7.30pm on Monday, January 10.

The offenders attacked two men inside, with one of the victims suffering an injury to his head which required hospital treatment.

A quantity of jewellery was stolen from the address before the attackers – who were wearing black clothing – got into a car and drove away.

Detective sergeant Tom Hall said: “The investigation is ongoing, with numerous enquiries underway to help find those who are responsible.

“While we continue with house-to-house and reviewing CCTV, I am also appealing to residents in the area to come forward with information.

“I would also encourage people to check their own CCTV or dashcam footage to see if it features anything that could assist with the investigation.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Cheshire Police on 101, quoting incident number IML1174772, or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
