Handgun used in Sandiacre robbery

A 54-year-old woman was punched in the face by two burglars armed with a handgun and a baseball bat.

At about 9pm last Tuesday, the two men entered a house in Jackson Avenue.

They demanded money from the woman who refused.

It was at that point one of the burglars punched her in the face.

She was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham where she was treated for an eye injury.
