House raided by masked gang carrying gun and crowbar

Masked burglars carried out an armed raid in Maidenhead on Monday night.

Several raiders got into a house in Heywood Court Close at about 10.45pm.

Police say there were about 10 people in the property at the time but none of them were injured.

They are treating the incident as an aggravated burglary.

Investigating officer, DC Iain Watkinson is appealing for winesses.

He said: "We’re keen to hear from anyone who was in the vicinity at the time and saw anything suspicious, particularly anyone running to or from the area.

"At this stage we believe this was an isolated incident."
