Staffordshire Police are appealing for witnesses following a forced entry to a residential property in Corporation Street in Stafford late last night (Tuesday August 16).

Police were called to the residential property just before midnight.

Unknown males had approached the front door of the secure and occupied property and forced it open.  One of the males then entered the property with, what is thought to be, a baseball bat demanding money.  The occupier blocked the male from entering the living room.

The male then left the property and both males left the area.

The males are described as wearing dark clothes.

If anyone has any information about this incident, they are asked to call Staffordshire Police on 101 and quote reference 883 of August 16.
