Robbers raid student home
A group of thieves broke into a student house in Hove on Tuesday and threatened to kill the students inside. The attack took place at about 9.30 pm in Albany Mews off Fourth Avenue.
“Strangers burst in, causing damage to a bedroom door by punching through it and taking personal possessions,” said Detective Constable Sapna Patel of Sussex Police.
“This was a particularly frightening incident for the residents.”
The six men involved in the attack stole mobile phones, a wallet and a small safe containing a passport.
The suspects are described as being of Asian or mixed race and between the ages of 18 and 24. They did not appear to be carrying weapons, and no one was injured in the attack. The suspects were last seen running off into Fourth Avenue.
Anyone who has information about the break-in or who saw a group of men acting suspiciously in the area is advised to contact Sussex Police.
