Gang armed with baseball bats break into Horsham home

A gang armed with baseball bats broke into a home and attacked a couple.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the break-in at a property in Granary Way, Horsham in the early hours of this morning.

A 31-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man received minor injuries when four men, all wearing balaclavas, forced their way into the property armed with baseball bats at around 2.20am today (February 19).

Detective Sergeant Glenn Willcocks from West Sussex CID said: "We believe that this may have been a targeted attack and fortunately the victims were not seriously injured.

"The suspects arrived in two cars - one thought to be a dark coloured Peugeot and the other a Ford Focus. I would appeal to anyone who saw the cars and heard or saw any suspicious activity to please get in touch.

"You can call 101 quoting serial 81 of 19/2 or leave an anonymous message with the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

Nothing was stolen from the property and neither victim required hospital treatment.

Don't sports shops ever get suspicious when they never sell a baseball or mitt, at the same time as they sell a bat? Baseball is hardly a major sport in the UK!

If this was happening everyday, it wouldn't be nice. But have any of you??!
Crime happens everyday, everywhere. If you live in Brighton, it doesn't mean your gay. If you live in London, it doesn't mean you'll get stabbed or shot. If your from Essex, it doesn't automatically mean you have the IQ of a piece of toast.
