Masked thugs using ‘EastEnders slang’ attacked two men with a crowbar and tied them up before stealing cash from their home in a distressing attack in the early hours of the morning.

One of the victims needed hospital treatment following the burglary in Worcester Park this week.

The two attackers entered the house in Mortimer Crescent at about 2.50am on Monday, May 29, and hit one of the men who lived there over the head with a crowbar. They then tied up both victims before escaping with cash.

The first suspect is described as about five foot three inches or five foot four inches tall and of average build. He was wearing a black coat, black furry jogging bottoms with elastic at the bottom, a balaclava and gloves. He is described as speaking with a local accent but “used slang like in EastEnders”, Surrey Police stated.

The second suspect was about five foot eight inches or five foot nine inches tall and of medium build. He was carrying a black gym bag with two zips and was wearing a black coat, ski masks with the eyes cut out and gloves. He spoke in a lower tone.

Surrey Police said there may have been a third male suspect, but there is no description of him.

DC Elliott Abdo said: “This was a vicious attack on two men which has left them both feeling extremely shaken and caused them considerable distress.”
