MASKED thugs forced their way into a Worcester home and threatened a man with a blade.

A group of four men wearing paintball masks broke into the property in Basin Road, Diglis, Worcester, at about 10.45pm on Friday, blindfolded the victim and threatened him.

They left without stealing anything and police later recovered a bladed weapon from the property. The victim was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Yesterday neighbours seemed unaware of the drama.

Police said they are looking for two Asian men and two other men in connection with the raid, but had no other descriptions of the attackers as the victim had not been able to see them clearly.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 quoting incident number 827-s-270614 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

This sounds awful but why would a group of men do this and take nothing? Sounds like a targeted threat to me.
