A £10,000 reward has been put up by the family of a man badly hurt during a terrifying masked raid on his Hampshire home.
The 45-year-old victim suffered a broken arm when two men, wearing masks, burst into his house.
He was at home with his girlfriend when the dramatic raid happened in Pembury Road, Warblington near Havant sometime between 8.00pm and 8.45pm on February 2.
The raiders escaped with three expensive watches; a Raymond Weil, a Cartier and a Longines.
They also stole £3,000 in cash and a dark blue Range Rover, which was found dumped in the entrance to Pook Lane, just south of the A27 a short time later.
Detective Inspector Kerry Loveless, of Waterlooville CID, who is heading the investigation said: “There is a substantial amount of money on offer for anyone who gives information about the incident leading to a conviction of the men responsible.
“This is a particularly cowardly and violent attack which has left a man with serious injuries and the family want to see these offenders brought to justice.”
