NEW CCTV cameras could be introduced to a village, it is hoped, following a brutal attack on a young mum and her children last week.

Cllr Scott Bryant, chairman of Colnbrook Parish Council, said: “It is shocking to see something like this happen and we are giving the police our full support.”

His pledge comes after a mother in her 20s was manhandled into her own house by four men who threatened her with a screwdriver before stealing expensive items and cash.

The terrifying attack happened in Severn Crescent, Brands Hill near Colnbrook on Monday, October 16 at 7.15pm.

Cllr Bryant said the authority was considering buying mobile cameras that could be moved into any hotspot areas, although residents would be consulted on locations.

He also revealed that talks with Thames Valley Police had been ongoing about restoring three PCSOs (Community Support Officers) to cover Colnbrook and Poyle by the end of the year – with the possibility of a fourth financed by the authority.

The mother was putting out rubbish in a bin on her driveway when she was violently pushed from behind into her house. She was manhandled into the living room where she fell and hit her head on a wall, injuring her foot on a baby gate in the doorway.

One of the four men that had entered the house then told her three children to get under the living room table, saying their mother would get hurt and threatening her with a screwdriver.

The remaining three men searched the victim’s bedroom. They stole Asian gold, wedding jewellery and a quantity of cash.

As they left they locked the family inside the house using the mother’s keys.

The three are described as white and were carrying screwdrivers. The first offender is aged about 20 to 22 years and thin. He was wearing a black mask, a white shirt with a collar which had black dots on it and dark coloured trousers.

The second offender is also thin and about the same age. He was also wearing a black mask.

The third and fourth offenders are approximately 30 and were wearing black masks.

The victim was treated at Slough’s Wexham Park Hospital and has since been discharged.

Investigating officer, Det Con Zoe Batten, said: “It is believed the offenders used a silver saloon car – possibly a Mercedes – and I would like to speak to anyone who saw a car in the area who may have information which could assist the investigation.

“Residents in the area may see an increased presence of police officers locally while we conduct our enquiries.”
