TWO men have been charged and a third man arrested after a burglary in which suspects fled by jumping out of a window and the victim's hands were wounded. Police were called at 8.41pm on Tuesday, June 24, to a house in Beech Copse, South Croydon, following reports of an aggravated burglary. Suspects fled the scene by jumping out of a window, police said, and two men were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and taken to a south London police station. A third suspect was arrested a short time later and taken to hospital after apparently jumping out of a window at a separate address. His injuries are not deemed life-threatening. The victim was taken to hospital with slash wounds to his hand. Kamar Smith, 20, of Mayow Road, Sydenham, and Paul Leslie, 37, of Crownstone Road, Brixton, were charged with aggravated burglary and appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court yesterday. Their cases were sent to Croydon Crown Court, where they are both due to appear on July 10. The third suspect has been bailed until mid-August pending further enquiries. Detectives from Croydon CID are investigating.
