POLICE have made a nationwide appeal to track down three burglars after they threatened victims with weapons.

The aggravated burglary in Martock featured on this week's BBC Crimewatch programme.

The incident involved three men forcing their way into a house, assaulting one of the occupants and threatening others with weapons, including a hammer on Sunday, November 24 last year.

CCTV images of two men and a car were shown on the programme.

At the time of the initial appeall investigating officer Detective Constable Russell Head said: “Do you recognise either of the men? Can you tell us who owns the car?

“The victims moved out of their home following this incident as they were so traumatised by it and we need the public’s help to identify those responsible.”

If you can help, call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5219271808
