Police think a Hampshire couple whose home was burgled were targeted.

Two men forced their way into a flat in The Hawthorns, Marlow Road just before 9.30pm on Wednesday 29 May. The men demanded money from the occupants, a man and a woman in their 20s, before leaving the address.

One of the suspects had his face covered and the other had fair hair and was wearing a grey hoodie.

Detective Sergeant Paul Southey said:

"This was frightening for the victims but thankfully no one was hurt.

"I would like to reassure local residents that this appears to have been a targeted incident.

"I would like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything in the area that may assist our investigation. Did you see any people or vehicles that seemed suspicious?"
