We’re appealing for witnesses following an aggravated burglary in Ash Green last night (March 13).

Four men broke into a property in White Lane around 8.45pm.

The victim, a man in his 50s, was assaulted with a hammer, by the suspects who repeatedly demanded jewellery and money from him.

The suspects then made off with a quantity of cash, keys, bank cards and an air pistol.

The victim has suffered serious injuries, which are not thought to be life-changing.

All four were wearing gloves, scarves over their faces, and one was carrying a hammer.
