On January 25 this year, between 10.30pm and 11.05pm, four people went into a house on Old Watford Road in Bricket Wood while the inhabitants were asleep.

The burglars searched the ground floor and were heading upstairs when a man who lives in the house confronted them.

They assaulted the victim with a hammer, stole his watch, and made off.

Herts police have released CCTV images of the offenders, who are wanted for aggravated burglary.

Investigating Det Con Jody Perrin said: “I am keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the clothing worn by the suspects, particularly the masks and biker gloves.

“I would also be keen to hear from anyone who has any other information which could assist the investigation.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. The crime reference is F3/18/186.
