A woman’s car was attacked with a crowbar after discovering two masked men parked on her driveway, and she later found out her Great Doddington home had been burgled.

The woman left her home at 7.35am to take her daughter to school and returned home later that morning, at about 11.20am.

As she approached her home address she noticed one of the gates to the driveway was missing and that a silver Range Rover was parked on the driveway, with the front of the vehicle facing towards the road.

The woman noticed two men inside the Range Rover as she looked to block the vehicle in, the man in the passenger seat of the Range Rover got out and ordered her to move her vehicle out of the way.

The man in the driver’s seat then got out and hit the woman’s vehicle a number of times with a crowbar. He then grabbed the woman’s mobile phone as she tried to ring the police.

The woman managed to shut the vehicle door and reversed out of the driveway, allowing the Range Rover to be driven off in the direction of Great Doddington village.

When she then went inside her house, she realised that entry to the property had been forced and a number of items stolen.

The driver of the Range Rover is described as white, about 6ft 2in, aged about 40 and broad. He had a deep voice and was smartly dressed,wearing a green hacking-style jacket with red in the fabric, black gloves and a white balaclava.

The passenger was white, about 5ft 10in and stocky. He was wearing a dark short brown jacket, blue jeans and a black balaclava.
