A laptop, iPhone and wallet were stolen during an aggravated burglary in Church Lane, Downend on Sunday evening (December 2)

The burglary occurred shortly after 8.30pm.

A police spokesman said: "The occupants answered the door to find a man and two women on the doorstep. They entered and made threats to the two male occupants. One of the occupants confronted the man causing him to flee back outside. The two women fled out a back door taking with them the stolen property."

The man is described as black, in his late teens or early 20s, around 6ft 2ins to 6ft 3ins with a slim build and a Bristol accent. He was wearing a hat with flaps over his ears.

One woman is described as an Asian or mixed-race woman, 18-22-years-old with a skinny build, drawn and gaunt face with heavy bags under the eyes and dark, shoulder length scraggy hair. She was wearing a purple-coloured fleece.

The other woman is described as Asian or mixed-race.

The incident was reported to police and an investigation is underway. Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
