Woman assaulted in Bridgwater
A woman was assaulted in her own home in front of one of her children in Bridgwater on Monday (3rd February).
The incident appears to have been a case of mistaken identity.
At 5am that morning two men called at the victim’s home in Queens Road, Bridgwater. When the victim opened the door the men demanded drugs, but she was able to close the door on them.
Shortly afterwards the two men got into the property and demanded money and drugs from the victim. The woman, who is in her thirties, was pushed to the floor and one of the intruders punched her in the face, causing cuts and bruising.
One of the victim’s children came down stairs and saw the events unfold.
The men then ran off, taking with them a mobile phone they’d picked up off a table. The mobile was later found close to the crime scene.
The intruders were both described as white, one his late twenties or early thirties, around 5ft 7ins to 5ft 10ins, of medium build, short blond/light coloured hair and he was wearing a light blue hooded top. The other around the same age, more than 6ft, of medium build, with a full ginger beard (closely trimmed). One of his upper front teeth was either dirty, broken or missing. He was wearing a black beanie hat and a black waterproof coat.
Avon & Somerset Police are urgently seeking witnesses. If anyone recognises these descriptions, or has any other information which could help the Police to identify these men, please come forward as soon as possible. If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5220026895.
