MEN armed with a knife and Taser raided a home in Hamworthy last night.

Police are hunting for five offenders after an aggravated burglary at a property in Maryland Road at 7.30pm.

Two men – one of whom was known to one of the occupants – visited the address. A short time later, three other men arrived.

One of these men, who is described as black, around six feet two inches tall, of medium build and wearing black clothing, had a knife.

Another man, described as white, around five feet nine inches tall, aged in his mid thirties and with a receding hairline, was carrying a black Taser.

The men took a number of items from the address, including a PlayStation 4 and a rose gold Samsung S7 Edge mobile phone. All five suspects then left the address together.

A white transit van was also reportedly seen in the area at the time of the offence. Detectives say this may be linked to the incident.

One of the victims, a man aged in his 20s, suffered a cut and grazes to his hands.

Detective Constable Katie Spyrou, of Bournemouth CID, said officers are searching for the men responsible.

Anyone with information, or those who witnesses suspicious activity in the Maryland Road area at the time of the raid, should contact police via or by calling 101, quoting 55190044186.
