Appeal after aggravated burglary in Matlock

Posted on 26th May 2017

Our detectives are appealing for information after an aggravated burglary at a house in Matlock last night.

Between 9.30pm and 10pm, four men knocked at a house in Starkholmes Road and forced their way in when the door was answered.

They assaulted the 70-year-old victim inside the property and then stole his bank card and cash before fleeing.

We want to hear from anyone who was in the area and might have seen suspicious activity, or who might have overheard someone talking about it today.

The men had their faces covered.

Anyone who saw the men running off or who might be able to help should call us on 101, quoting reference 17000219580.
