Computer equipment robbery - Eynsham

Police are appealing for witnesses after thieves stole more than 40,000 of computer equipment from a business in Eynsham on Friday evening (7th December).

Between 8pm and 8.45pm three men entered European Electronique on the Oakfield Industrial Estate on Stanton Harcourt Road.

They assaulted the two members of staff who were on site and tied them up. They then forced their way into the warehouse area and stole a quantity of laptops to the value of 43,000.

Two of the men, who all covered their faces, were white and the other was black.

Det Sgt Howard Berry of Witney CID said: "While the staff's injuries are minor, they have been put through a shocking experience that has left them distressed and upset.

"So, it is important we find these men. We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen people acting suspiciously in the Oakfield Industrial Estate area between 7.30pm and 9pm.

"In particular, did you see any vehicles seen in that area? We believe the robbers would have needed a van or something similar to transport so many stolen laptops."

Sgt Berry can be contacted via the Police Enquiry Centre on 0845 8 505 505.

If you don't want to talk to police and don't want to leave your name, call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
