A MAN was hit in the head with a dumbbell and threatened with a knife by a group of men in an aggravated burglary in High Wycombe this week.

At around 11.30pm on Monday, five men knocked on the door of a residence in Perth Road. When the door was opened, they forced the occupant into the bedroom.

Half the group went into another room where they assaulted another occupant by hitting him in the head with a dumbbell and threatened him with a knife. Both victims were men, aged 26 and 36.

The intruders searched both rooms but left without taking any property apart from a kitchen knife, which was bright sky blue with a plastic handle and a six inch blade.

The man holding the knife is described as black, around 5ft 4ins tall, of average build with a dark complexion. He had a thin face and short cut black hair possibly with facial hair and wearing a black tracksuit.

A second intruder is described as Asian, around 5ft 3ins tall, of medium build, light skinned with short black hair and a thick beard.

The third offender, also holding a knife, is described as black, around 6ft 1in tall, of slim build wearing black clothing. He had an indent scar on his right cheek just above his lip and spoke with a London accent.

The intruder holding the dumbbell was tall, around 6ft 3ins, of big build with his face covered.

The victims received no serious injury and did not require hospital treatment.

Whilst this is a horrible attack, I highly doubt half of the 5 men went and searched the other room.

I do hope that the people attacked are ok, why should they not feel safe to open their door no matter what the time is.
BUT our chief of police keeps telling us Wycombe is safe, RUBBISH.
Wycombe is a multi cultural, gang infested, drug ridden alcohol induced time bomb waiting to go off, and as usual policing has been cut back and the top brass walk around with their heads stuffed up their arses, Its about time the started to see the woods for the trees.

So we have 2 men who are 5ft 3 and 5ft 4, and 2 men who are 6ft 1 and 6ft 3.
Thats 4. Where is the 5th??
Half of them went into another room. was this 2 people or 2and a half?
When they opened the door, they forced the occupant in the bedroom.
Is this a bungalow, did they push him upstairs?

Hope all is ok, but sounds strange.

This is the reality of multiculturalism. I'm getting sick of this now, why is it whenever I come across the utter majority of crime stories on the BFP, for a town which is 75% white, about 75% minimum of the perpetrators of Wycombe crimes are Black and Asian (Pakistani). It's a remarkable over-representation. It's only a matter of time before High Wycombe turns out like Slough, where native White Brits are only 35% of the population. I give it 20-30 years before White Brits are a minority in Wycombe, just like in Slough, Luton, Leicester and London.

You reap what you sow, keep voting for labour, tories and the lib dems and you'll be reminded of your utter idiocy in about 20-30 years time.
