|Two Men Charged with Aggravated Burglary in Roehampton|
Puppy stolen from Arabella Drive remains untraced
Two men have been charged by officers investigating an aggravated burglary in Roehampton last month.
The victim reported that two males identifying themselves as police officers entered her home on Arabella Drive shortly before 9.58am on Monday 29 November.
They told the woman, who is in her thirties, that they were conducting a drug search but then allegedly assaulted her to gain access to the property leaving her needing hospital treatment.
A two-month old female American XL bulldog puppy, which is described as ‘blue merle’, was taken from the property as well as cash and a bag containing Christmas gift.
46-year-old Simon Ludlow of London Road, Mitcham appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 3 December charged with aggravated burglary and the following day 57-year-old Michael Cloherty of Chipperfield Road, Orpington appeared at the same court charged with the same offence.
Both were remanded in custody to appear at Kingston Crown Court on Wednesday, 22 December.
Another man aged 53 was arrested as part of this investigation and has been bailed pending further enquiries to return on a date in late December.
Enquiries to locate the puppy remain ongoing.
