Police in Oldham are looking for four men who they believe they could hold information about a violent burglary where around £700-800’s worth of items were stolen and the occupant was hit twice in the head with a baseball bat.

The burglary took place near Werneth Park in May at an ddress on Lacrosse Avenue

The four men – one wielding a baseball bat and another holding a flick knife – entering the property and making threats.

The occupant of the address – a man in his 20s – was struck twice to the back of the head with the bat and required medical attention for two large, deep wounds.

During the ordeal, the offenders made demands and used the knife to threaten the victim before they made off with a PlayStation4, Louise Vuitton bag, jewellery, clothing, aftershaves and the victim’s bank card, totalling a cost of between £700 and £800.

Detective Constable Mike Radcliffe, of GMP Oldham’s CID, said: “It’s important that we catch the culprits of this appalling act of violence and by releasing the image of these four men we want to speak to as part of our investigation I hope it may get us closer to catching those responsible.

“The place where people should feel safest is in their own home and we are doing all we can to ensure the offenders are taken off the streets and brought to book for these crimes.”
