A screwdriver was allegedly used as a weapon during an aggravated burglary during which two men were attacked.
The incident happened at a property in Runfold Avenue, Luton, at around 1.40am on Saturday, June 30 , when one of the victims answered a knock at the front door.
A group of men forced their way in to the property and assaulted the two occupants before leaving the scene.
The victims, both men aged 29 and 40, were both taken to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital for treatment to facial bruising and cuts to their backs which were believed to have been caused with a screwdriver.
They were released and returned home shortly after.
The officer in charge of this investigation, Detective Constable Mike Robinson, is keen to trace anyone who saw a large group of men, all dressed in hooded tops, in the area at the time of the incident.
Anyone with information about this crime can contact DC Robinson, in confidence, on 01582 473326, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
