Trio in balaclavas hurled TV through Poole window during break-in

THREE people in balaclavas forced their way into a block of flats in Poole before throwing a TV through a window.

Detectives are investigating an aggravated burglary at a property in Ashley Road at around 7.05pm on Friday (February 23).

A Dorset Police spokesperson said three men wearing balaclavas forced their way into a communal area of a property in Ashley Road and began banging on the door of a flat.

“The offenders reportedly threw a television through the window of the property, forcing the occupant to flee to a neighbouring address,” they added.

“The suspects then made off from the scene and it was reported that one of them was nearly involved in a collision with a vehicle as they ran out into the road.”

Detective Inspector Darren Moores, of BCP CID, said: “We are conducting a number of enquiries to identify those involved in this incident and I am keen to hear from any witnesses or anyone with information that might assist our investigation.

“I am particularly keen to speak to the motorist who was nearly involved in a collision with one of the suspects as they left the scene and would urge anyone who was travelling around the area of Ashley Road, near to the junction with Davis Road, around the time of the incident to please check any dashcam footage to see if they have captured anything that might assist our enquiries.”

Anyone with information should contact Dorset Police via, or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55240028278. They can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
