Burglars wielding knives and a metal pole left a man needing hospital treatment.

At around 10.30pm on Monday night (March 5), four offenders forced entry to a property in Severn Drive, Newport Pagnell.

The house was occupied at the time by three people.

The burglars demanded money and then assaulted one of the occupants, the 62-year-old man, causing injuries to the head and back which required hospital treatment. He has since been discharged.

An amount of cash was stolen from the property during the incident, and light coloured vehicle was seen in the area at the time which police are trying to identify.

The offenders are described as four men, all with face coverings and who spoke with Eastern European accents.
