A WOMAN was struck over the head with a hammer during a terrifying late-night burglary in Woodside. The 33-year-old went downstairs and discovered three men in her home in Rusthall Close. One of the intruders was armed with a hammer and as the woman tried to push them out of her house she was hit on the head, causing a small cut. All three suspects were described as men wearing dark clothing. Two are described as black men aged between 17 and 19-years-old with beanie hats, with one wearing a dark jacket. They took various electrical items, including two iPhones and a games console. The aggravated burglary occurred at 11.55pm on February 13 but police have only today released an appeal. Detective Constable Andy Pike, from Croydon CID, said: "We've carried out various enquiries, but have not been able to identify the suspects in this case. "If anyone remembers seeing anything suspicious or has any information, then we would urge you to get in touch." Anyone with information is urged to call Croydon police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
