A thief pinned a man to the floor while his accomplice robbed his house in an aggravated burglary.

The two men knocked at the door of the flat in The Tene, Baldock, at around 10pm on Sunday, July 27, and pushed the victim to the floor when he answered.

The victim, in his 20s, suffered a cut lip and was held there while one of the offenders searched the flat and stole a small amount of cash.

They then ran across the park next to the flats.

The first suspect is described as a white man aged in his early to mid-20s who was of around 5ft 9in tall and of a stocky build with short light coloured hair. He was wearing an orange coloured hooded top and light coloured jogging bottoms.
