Family hide in loft as burglars threaten homeowner with knife

Catherine Thompson 21st Aug, 2017 Updated: 21st Aug, 2017

A FAMILY were forced to hide in the loft after burglars threatened a homeowner with a knife.

The gang of around six men grabbed a knife from the kitchen and demanded keys for a car parked outside the Coughton home.

The homeowner and their family hid until the thugs left at around 9pm on Tuesday (August 15).

The burglars fled the scene in the direction of Studley in a silver car. They took with them a purse and bank cards.

Anyone with information can call 101 to speak to police.
