Police have released CCTV images of a car believed to be connected to five men who targeted two elderly women in an aggravated burglary.

The car was seen close to the house at the time of the incident, which happened on Thursday January 25, in Priory Road, Dartford.

Officers investigating the incident are appealing for witnesses who may have seen either the group of men or the car in the moments leading up to or following the burglary.

At around 10.40pm, a group of men are reported to have forced their way into a house, where they allegedly threatened the victims with weapons, with one man grabbing hold of a victim’s face and demanding her to tell him where her jewellery was.

The group, who are reported to have made both women stay in the living room whilst continuing to threaten them and remove their jewellery, are also reported to have had bats with them.

The men allegedly searched the house, from which they stole a large quantity of items.

Following an investigation, officers have identified CCTV of a car they would like to trace, which was seen in the area at the time of the incident.

The car is described as a dark coloured estate type vehicle.

Two men have been described as being of slim build and black, around 5ft 9ins tall, and wearing black clothing and plastic face masks.

Two other men are described as being black, of medium build, also 5ft 9ins and wearing black clothing and masks, with one aged between 30 to 40.

The fifth man is described as white, aged in his 50’s, around 5ft 7 ins tall, medium build, and wearing a black bandana covering half of his face.

He was also wearing black clothing and had light coloured eyes, and at one point his mask came off, showing he had a round face and a flat nose.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Kent Police on 01474 366149, quoting crime reference number XY/5174/18.

Alternatively, Kent Crimestoppers can be called anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
