Four men are being hunted by police after breaking into a house in Washington and threatening the occupant with weapons.

At around 5.30pm on Sunday, April 8 police received a report that four masked men had broken into a property on Heatherlea Place by smashing the back door window.

A male was then threatened by two offenders while two more raided the house. The gang made away with a substantial amount of money along with a bracelet, wallet and watches.

One of the watches has a large, circular blue watch face with an inscription of the letters ‘AX’.

The victim was shaken and suffered bruising. Enquiries are ongoing as police look to trace the four men involved.

Crimes of this nature are rare, and police are following all lines of enquiry in order to identify and locate the offenders.

Officers are keen to hear from anybody who may have information about the burglary, or anything suspicious at the time of the incident.

Those who have any information are asked to contact 101 quoting reference number 044663E/18, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
