Suspects sought for Hoxton pistol burglary

Hackney police have released an e-fit image of a man they would like to speak to in connection to an aggravated burglary in Hoxton.

The victim was at home near East Road on Friday May 13 when answered a knock at the door at about 6am.

He was confronted by four men in balaclavas, two of them with pistols, who pushed the victim back inside, demanding the keys to his motorbike.

He emptied his pockets as asked, but was then hit over the head with a gun and tied up, before he fell unconscious for a couple of hours.

The burglars stole various belongings including the victim’s house keys.
