A woman was struck with a bat when several men forced their way into her home. 

Officers were called to the incident in Longstanton High Street at about 8pm on Wednesday February 3.

While inside the house, the men were confronted by the victim, a woman in her 40s.

They struck her with a bat, causing minor injuries, before fleeing on foot towards High Street where they got into a dark saloon and sped off without lights on.

PC Nick Raouna said: “This was a nasty incident which has left the victim understandably shaken.
