Three men broke into a house by smashing the window of a rear door.

A property in Woodmere Avenue, Watford, was broken into on Wednesday (November 27) by three men who smashed the glass in a rear door.

After they searched around the property, the three men were disturbed by the homeowner in the living room. It is believed the homeowner has a minor hand injury due to the incident and enquiries are being carried out to establish how this was caused.

Investigations are also continuing to establish if anything was taken.

Detective Constable Jon Holmes, from the Watford Local Crime Unit, said: “We are currently in the very early stages of our investigation but would like to appeal for anyone with information to please come forward.

“Did you witness any suspicious activity around the time? Or perhaps see three men running from the area?

“Any information could greatly assist us moving forward, especially if you may have captured dash cam footage of the suspects.”
